Hayden White opines that, within the 20th century, many historians and philosophers have “cast severe doubts at the price of a particularly ‘historical’ realization, under pressure the fictive personality of historic reconstructions, and challenged history’s claims to a spot one of the sciences” . In different phrases, the target fact in background has become taken due to subjective illustration. With political, monetary and army dominance, the West overtook the area and initiated an period of imperialism. The imperial regime had created a divide among the East and the West in the course of the latter’s patronizing angle in the direction of the non-Western subject.
Even even though Amitav Ghosh doesn't give some thought to himself as a postcolonial author, his works still problematize the dominant place of the West and provide attainable to build another heritage. Like revisionist historians, he bases his works on genuine old evidence that shape a part of collective reminiscence. He inserts the a part of background that has now not been deemed to be vital through the Western historians.
