Authors Name: Dr.Beauti Das

Abstract: The novel Apne-Apne Ajanabee is an existentialist novel wherein a conflicting philosophy is being projected between the Eastern and Western ideology in relation to the existence of Almighty and at the end, the author has very magnificently and compassionately handled the plots, characters of the novel concerned to such a way by which the Indian philosophy has won over the Western ideology by lying down of the character Yoke by name on the lap of Jagannathan, the name of whom is related to the part and parcel of the Worship of Indian mass people. The novel Apne-Apne Ajanabee was composed in a scenario totally set abroad, the characters of the novel are also of foreign origin except one from India, Jagannathan by name. The narrative of the novel is pictorised with the help of the infusion of conflict juxtaposed between the existential Indian beliefs that come in direct confrontation with the Western non believers. The novelist himself takes the role of narrator which begins with the environment of sudden earthquake due to which there occurs severe icefall; as a result of which the central characters Yoke and Selma were forced in the captivity of a ice laden house wherein they can’t have any idea of Sunlight or darkness of midnight or the progress of time running around them. What really strikes us that in the novel Apne-Apne Ajanabee the author has allowed to have a conflict in between Theism and Atheism in such an environment wherein any one of these isms cannot have an extra advantage over the other. For a common man it will be very difficult to think about an environment wherein none of these two can have advantage over the other, what we would like to name as a Neutral Environment. As we know that Atheism has always an extra mileage during day-light. On the other hand Theism always enjoys an extra mileage during darkness of the night. The conflict between Theism and Atheism will never be justified if it will take place either in day-light or in the darkness of the night. The author Ajneya has elegantly created an environment of an ice-laden house wherein Yoke (The representative of Atheism) and Selma (The representative of Theism) were forced to live under such circumstances wherein both of them could not feel the difference of day-light and darkness of the night. Through such environments Ajneya wanted to bring the triumph card between Theism and Atheism and he wanted to show which side has the maximum possibility and capability to win over the other. Ajneya can definitely be credited for bringing such a unique conception of two philosophical perceptions with extra-ordinary innovation of two conflicting ideologies pushing each one to win over the other in such a neutral environment
