Abstract: – In the Postcolonial discourse, the study of the nation is emerging as an ambivalent phenomenon that revolves around the political thoughts and literary languages. The term nation uses to describe historical ideas, society, the cultural, traditional and political condition of borderlines in searching the role of social life and nation formation. This paper examines Amitav Ghosh’s Shadow Lines and Manohar Malgonkar’s A Bend in the Ganges, from the Praxis of the political consciousness and issues of the historical nation. This paper also looks at the representation of these writers by using religion, culture and some historical aspects. While Amitav Ghosh’s Shadow Lines describes nationalism that investigates the borderline between nations by presenting narrator’s family, Manohar Malgonkar’s A Bend in the Ganges investigates the movement of freedom struggle and communal violence at various parts of the country. Both novels interrogate the issues of national identity, borderlines, communal violence, and values of the culture.

Keywords: – Postcolonial, Nation, Borderline, Identity, Communal Violence
