The present paper intends to discuss the elements (Metropolitanism, other, hybridity, nativism and diaspora) of post colonial theory found in Kamila Shamsie`s novel Burnt Shadows. The study addresses the conditions of the people who suffered before and during India`s partition. The aim of this paper is to see how colonizers (British) treated colonized (India) and how natives reacted against their injustice. The paper also tells the history of India before and during the British Raj. Moreover, it discusses treatment of the previous rulers who had also conquered India before advent of English. British also occupied and ruled India, but how their ways of the ruling were different from all previous rulers.
