The success of a literary artist lies not only in his ideas but also in his expression. The style reveals the nature and the intention of the writer. Raja Rao has achieved this by using language creatively. To begin with, instead of the western narrative technique, he has used the ancient Indian Puranic method of storytelling, which according to him would be natural and true to our climate. Raja Rao uses various other stylistic devices too, like repetition, additional modification in sentences, in order to bring the rhythm and structure of the Indian languages.
Key Words: Indian English, puranic, storytelling, banana trunk, mango trees, big mountains
