Abstract

V. S. Naipaul is a well-known writer of the present times. In his writings, he has written about the problems of diasporic people. The present paper deals with his cosmopolitan and Eurocentric views, generally about the Indian society and especially about the situations of Punjab in 1980’s. The focus of this paper is on his understanding of Sikh religion, Sikhs, social and political situations of Punjab specifically after 1984 with special reference to a chapter “The Shadow of the Guru” from his non-fiction book entitled India: A Million Mutinies Now (1990).
