Like the other post colonial writers Kamala Markandaya raised the issues that were untouched by the colonial writers. Her novel Nectar in a Sieve deals with the helplessness of the marginalised section of the society. The present paper deals with dislocation and disintegration of rural life resulting into dispossession of villagers, represented through the characters of Rukmani & Nathan in the wave of industrialisation and urbanisation. In due course of the novel villagers were dispossessed of the land they used to till and cordial familial bondages due to forced migration of one or the other member of their family. Even their sense of belongingness to the village shook after establishment of tannery. Poverty pervades across the village and conditions became difficult so much as the daughter of Rukmani & Nathan has to adopt prostitution and the parents could do nothing. In a way, they are snatched of their right of respectable living. The overall condition in the novel too highlights the gradual devastation of nature by the neo colonial forces snatching the right of the villagers to lead the life peacefully in the lap of nature. Keywords: Post Colonial, Marginalised, Dislocation, Disintegration, Dispossession, Devastation of Nature and Neo colonial forces
