Ngugi wa Thing’o is one of the prominent voices of the post-colonial world, who always vehemently advocates the necessity of re-establishing the harmonious past, where human begins used to live with nature and following the traditional healthy life. It is the traditional history which us to connect with our ancestors. His ire is that the colonial and European forces entered to these traditional societies with too many rosy slogans but instead of making life of colonized better, colonialist destroyed the healthy practices of ancestors and tried hard to induce the colonial values by preaching that these values are eternal, symbol of civilization and provide cultural identity. Ngugi questions these concocted values and he uses his fictional and non-fictional works to portray these ever burring issues, of course sometimes polemical and political too. For this he writes a book called “Writers in politics—”, to prove that no writer in away from politics. Keeping this as epicenter or the kneading point, an attempt is made in this paper to read; Ngugi’s Weep Not, Child & Wizard of the Crow. Keywords: Postcolonial, European, Civilization, Tradition, Colonial, Concocted, Polemical, Identity etc.
