Enlaced with post colonialism, the fictional writings of Amitava Ghosh are enthused with strong themes. One of the significant attribute as is noted in his fictions is that, though his novels are silhouetted with strong themes, the novels do not exude any formulaic ideas. The 19th century colonial India became the theme of his novels. Often he blends the legends of history in his novels, which intensify the interest of his novels, thereby bringing together the literature, history, young people, culture and tradition. Apart from the fictional writings, the non-fictions are no less important. India's nuclear policy, essays on various topics such as history of the novel, Egyptian culture and literature etc are the chief theme of the non-fictional writings of Amitava Ghosh.
