Creator Suresh, Mr. Chimata
Reddy, Dr. G. Chenna
Subject V. Naipaul, An Area of Darkness, Negative Perspective, Banned book in India.
Description This research paper is an attempt to analyze the reason for many Indian nationalists finds Naipaul's An Area of Darkness as an unfitting description of India. The book is banned in India as soon as it was published for showing India in a poor light.  In this research paper, the researcher advocates the opinions of many critics, who feel that Naipaul had been very harsh and blunt in describing India. The researcher quotes various reviews and articles to support his views in this paper. The researcher quotes the lines from the book to support his argument. Although V. S. Naipaul is an Indian by origin, he is mostly influenced by the western way of living and unable to take the fact that his expectations about India have not been met.  Appreciating the narrative style of Naipaul, the researcher concludes that An Area of Darkness is biased in many aspects. Travelers are the reason for the ills in Indian Society and any other traveler, who tries to exploit any such ills are not welcomed to India.
