Nissim Ezekiel and Eunice De‟Souza as postmodern writers have contributed significantly to Indian Literature in English. It is interesting to note that these two creative writers have picked up the subjects for their writing from the city background. In this paper we have made an attempt to discuss how the characters in their masterpieces become prominent. We have taken Eunice De Souza‟s novel Dangerlok, to analyze the theme of women resistance, and to study her unique style of expressions that depict women‟s issues ,women psychology and resistance. From Nissim Ezekiel‟s poems both the urban theme and the Indian sensibility of the writer is discussed. This paper also discusses how religion plays its role in women‟s life, and mends their behavior and upbringing, in the writings of Eunice De Souza. At the same time, it is noted that how the author draws attention towards Hindu culture and its impact on Indian women, irrespective of religion, caste or creed. The novelist‟s tendency towards studying the dilemma of an educated woman in the scenario of India, and finding a complex stance to identify herself with self-revelation is also discussed
