As a social humanist, Rohinton Mistry is provoked by the atrocities continued against the downtrodden and suffered people. Here, in his novel A fine Balance Mistry strives hard to reform the society by exposing various problems. Mistry desires peace to prevail in the society by understanding the various problems of individuals. An unchallengeable feature of Mistry's humanism is the theme of condemnation of struggle for identity and survival. Ambition and dreams of his protagonists are tied with hope and despair about thelife of themodern world. Mistry shows the basic ambivalence of common men, as arealist and humanist through his works. His humanistic convictions and concept of arts show his thoughts of revolutionary. All forms of feudal exploitation, oppression, especially evil social practices of casteism and untouchability uplift to downtrodden and suffered people. Therefore, Mistry has become a spokesman of this revolution. The main focus of this paper is to portray the struggles of the characters face in the contemporary world.
