The current analysis looks at the reactionary readings of South Asia and Africa made by diasporic authors. It shows how the West perceives former colonial cultures and traditions, as well as how they intend to preserve their own cultural traditions. Things Fall Apart (1958) and The Unchosen (1990) are thus selected to analyse intransigent interpretations of Africa and South Asia by postcolonial authors. The chief objective of the study is to refute the claims of the colonizers about the colonized. The paper also compares Conrad's Heart of Darkness (1899) with Hesse's Journey to the East (1932). The study argues that South Asia and Africa are civilised places and that the claims of the conquerors are false. The study is examined in the context of Frantz Fanon's postcolonial theory. The investigation is exploratory. It also looked at the historical occurrence of prejudice in Western and European literature toward eastern societies and cultures. The research revealed that colonisers attempted to alter the religious and cultural practises of the colonised peoples, which caused unrest and instability among the Indians.
