Abstract
Since the last two decades synesthesia has been enjoying a renaissance as its scientific and psychological investigations have not only unraveled the neurophysiological structures that mediate experience, but have also brought to fore some significant implications concerning cognition, perception, behaviour, art and emotion’. The present paper endeavours to bring together literature, synesthesia and science of consciousness through an applicational case study of the famous novel A Mango Shaped Space. The paper maps out the evolution of the protagonist from a sufferer to a winner within the framework of Altered States of Consciousness.
