‘WHAT’ VERSUS ‘HOW’ IN A NARRATIVE: DECODING THE SECRET BEHIND SALMAN RUSHDIE’S CHARM IN THE WORLD OF FICTION

Dr. Yash Deep Singh, Raina Singh.

Abstract
A writer employs a specific narrative technique and takes recourse to a particular narrative strategy with a view to projecting his perception, his vision of art and life, as well as communicating his concerns and commitments in a way that the reader not only appreciates his works in a better manner, but also shares his attitude and sensibility. In addition, the narrative technique resorted to in a novel goes a long way in lending artistic freshness and aesthetic effulgence to it. Over several decades, Salman Rushdie has indubitably been an impressive presence on the world literary scene. Apart from exploring a broad spectrum of themes, the most distinguishing feature of Rushdie‘s potency as a fabulist is his capability to blend genres, bring together oriental and occidental narrative modes, break free from all constraints of chronological sequence and take recourse to postmodern experimental methods of narration. Herein is the key to the exemplary success of Rushdie as a postmodern novelist of our times. This article attempts at decoding the secret behind Salman Rushdie's 'Magic as a Fabulist' by closely examining the narrative techniques in ten novels authored by him.

Key words: Fiction, Narrative strategies, literary devices, Innovation, Charm, Postmodern techniques
