The aims of this research paper is to identify in what forms 'newness' is a part of Salman Rushdie's fiction, as well as an overarching philosophical 'newness' that vindicates Rushdie's anti-humanist view of human existence which is constantly subjected to the authoritarian 'presence' by the modem power structure controlled either by the institution of capitalism or that of religions. As Rushdie is a part of the conditions prevailing in the confluence of post colonialism, postmodernism and neo-colonialism which he attempts to depict, the aim then is to explore his new way of looking at them, through applying anti-aesthetic attitudes to his subject matter. His novels depict a distinctly different world, by his new anti-aesthetic approach. Rushdie is able to present a new perspective of human materiality which is described under the rubrics of postmodemism and/or postcolonial ism. One of the significant aspects of Rushdie's literary newness is that in each of his subsequent novels the precipice he looks over is ever more perilous; his imagination is able to perceive and represent it in a new style. In his imagination, Rushdie's world is "post-postcolonial" one.
