The aim of this paper is to undertake a comparative analysis of the writings of an Indian writer-activist Mahasweta Devi (1926-2016) and the East African revolutionary writeractivist Ngugi wa Thiongò (b. 1938) keeping in mind their different social background, both in their individual lives as well as in their socio-political and cultural conditions of their respective countries of birth. Both these countries have been subjected to long periods of colonial subjugation and that has altered the identity according to its own requirements. Racial discrimination and caste system are so deep rooted in both these colonialized nations where new challengers are waiting to be discovered. Furthermore, the paper presents that Devi's Draupadi and Ngugi's Weep Not, Child (1964) are the epitome of class conflict, exploitation and gender discrimination. Thus, I have critically examined the extremities faced by the protagonists in these writers in a state of constant flux. © Serials Publications.
