Abstract
The concept of violence is an integral part of human psyche, an element of life. The need for violence and non-violence has always been a debatable issue. Both are complex and antithetical terms. In the present research paper, an attempt will be made to outline the manifestations of violence and counter-violence with special reference to Meena Alexander’s novel, Nampally Road. The detailed study of the selected novel discloses the power and politics working against common people especially against women in India. But Alexander has challenged the very notion of the use of violence against common citizens of India by their counter-violence.
