After the Second World War, the Indian English novelists made remarkable contribution in the field of English Fiction.The Indian English fiction does not inspire readers to escape to the world of imagination as it is a systematic study of Indian culture and civilization. After all the Indian English novelists also had their own experiences and aspirations. Due to their minute sense of observation they understood the problems of Indian masses as a whole. In the world of Indian English novel, Kamala Markanday has an eminent place. After published her first novel ‘Nectar in a sieve' in 1954, she achieved great success and fame. In her first novel- in Nectar in a sieve, novelist presents a family (a picture of Indian domestic life) that suffers great poverty in life. Because of this poverty they faced the day of hunger, disease and at last death. In this novel, novelist describes some evils in Indian domestic life- such as- big and joined families, reckless way of earning and chiefly un-education. These are the main demerits in India by which a man have to suffer.As, Tagore understood the social and economic problems of India and suggested the vision of idealism to solve them.
