In this paper, I have tryied to move beyond the traditional conceptualisation of justice like desert, virtue and fairness attempted to bring into the fold of justice the emerging concepts like capabilitarianism, functioning, feminist conception and recognition discourse. The contemporary literature around justice since 1971 with the publication of Theory of Justice is generally in dialogue or in contrast with John Rawls. Nancy Fraser, B.R. Ambedkar, Akeel Bilgrami, Axel Honneth, Iris M. Young?s bought diverse perspective on justice at the level of cognition and recognition, should be seen as a new attempt in the field without necessarily in conversation with Rawls. This paper will also explore Amartya Sen at length who is attempting to pursue similar venture by bringing Capability to the Rawlsian distributive framework only. Overall this paper is a project not to discard the distributive framework of justice but to think of manifold methodologies to make it more inclusive.
