The declining decades of the 20th century witnessed discussion of various issues pertaining to colonialism, postcolonialism, literary criticism and aesthetics in India. The present book in its four parts "Word, World and Perception", "Colonialism and After", "Literature and Theorizing in India", and "Criticism and India" deals with them and ancillary issues; and in the process of revisiting them not only critiques their constructs but also proposes alternative constructs in the context of Indian realities and their manifestations in creative and critical terms.
