Abstract
Ayn Rand, a Russian American writer came to the forefront when Russian Revolution was at its peak. She personally experienced the atrocities of communism. So she fled to America, as she found it to be the freest country. But she was shocked when the Communist, Fascist and Nazis ideals became very popular in America. As a result the process of collectivization is portrayed successfully at a deeper level in her novels. Ayn Rand, through her novels has brought a sense of awakening about the horrors of collectivism and she framed a philosophy called ‘objectivism’. In all her novels her characters exhibited her philosophy. This paper makes an attempt to brief the philosophical convictions of Ayn Rand.
