      Ayesha Awan
Abstract: South Asian region is facing the challenges of political instabilities, social unrest, insecurities due to whatever is happening in political scene since last few decades. Present study focuses on the trends of globalization in South Asian English novels with reference to Indian, Pakistani and Afghani novels. South Asia is particularly the most targeted region due to its geo-political and strategic standing in global scenario. Moreover stereotypical notions such as nationalism, fundamentalisms have compartmentalized people of this region in suffocated cabins of cast, creed, religion, nation and culture. In such a critical time a piece of literature can no longer remain a mere piece of story that serve to entertain, rather it is morally bound to fill the gaps in order to break boundaries that lead to destruction. Amitav Gosh a renowned Indian novelist in his novel The Shadow Lines (1988) negates the concepts of national, social and cultural boundaries. Our Lady Of Alice Bhati (2011) is a Pakistani novel by Muhammad Hanif in which he finds common grounds between two religions on the basis of humanity and nature.
