Abstract

Ecological Instability refers to the degradation of landscapes, frequent climatic changes, global warming, pollution, disappearance of various mammals and birds, acid rains, destruction of the wild habitats, massive upheaval in the aquatic world, infertility of the soil, demolition of trees or deforestation, etc. In the recent years the entire global world has been suffering from different types of environmental catastrophes due to instabilities in the smooth mechanism of the ecosystems in both aquatic and non aquatic regions. The concrete solution or remedy lies in the fact that anyhow self centred and mechanized people happily relinquish their claim to rule over the natural resources and engage themselves in the mission of bringing stability in all parts of the global environment. The present paper brings to light the ecological Instability as an issue of the entire globe by investigating the select Indian creative writings written in English. Amitav Ghosh's The Glass Palace and Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things have unraveled the deep pressing global issue of the ecological unrest by raising the questions of exploitation and extinction of the wild animals and also the impurity or pollution in the river. The paper endeavors its best to find out the solutions to counterbalance the increasing ecological instability for the infinite existence of the Earth.
