Colonialism has become a matter of past but its dominance is starkly evident in the lives of once colonized. The region and the people who were colonized; still carries the submissive notion like ‘west better than east', ‘high and low', ‘superior and inferior'. On surface it seems that the phase of ‘decolonization' has brought an end to colonialism. Indeed, it has provided a physical liberation but the psyche of the once colonized and their coming generations are still colonized.
