The previous century has witnessed an amazing blossoming of literary genres from the formerly colonized countries. Post-colonial writing originated from Britain's former provinces like the Caribbean, Africa, and India. Several Post-colonial writers lay emphasis on common themes such as the struggle for independence, migration, displacement, diaspora, hybridity, emigration, national identity, and colonization. Amitav Ghosh, a widely acknowledged among Indian authors who writes with a Post- colonial perception. He belongs to the nation that was once incarcerated and governed by the imperialist. This has influenced his writing a lot. This paper is based on post-colonial theory which investigates the conquests, dissatisfaction of dislocated and subjugated people and about their exiled King in a Post-colonial world through the analysis of Amitav Ghosh's novel The Glass Palace. The story pirouettes three eras of two families in Burma, India, and Malaya. It is a historical novel about the British colonization of Burma. In this novel, Ghosh exposes the suffering of the folks at different levels. Colonization makes the people completely unconscious of their roots and makes them feel alienated in their own country. His novel "The Glass Palace" serves as a paradigm of Postcolonial text. © Serials Publications.
