Abstract

 

In this harsh and bitter world where intolerance of ideas and beliefs has become the call of the day, Rohinton Mistry is one such writer who is trying to find sanity in an insane world. The only thread he can find to hang upon is his undying “faith”. It is his faith, in the innate goodness of humanity and his firm belief in the commandment preached by every religion that the forces of good always triumph over the forces of evil that is evident in all his works, that gives his strength to surge forward in this quagmire of the world. Despite all odds, they are able to go on keeping their faith alive whether in their religious beliefs, political beliefs or any other. This is one point of dissimilarity between Mistry and other postmodern writers who have deliberately given up the hope of human salvation through faith. Also, some traits of the absurd philosophy and existentialism can be traced in the fiction of Mistry where all the characters seem more or less incapable at the hands of Destiny. Still, they are not disheartened and derive the momentum to go on from their faith that acts as the umbilical cord between man and God and provides them spiritual nourishment.

Keywords- Postmodernism, absurdism, existentialism, faith, intolerance
