    Abstract :
    This paper examines the impact of gun violence and bomb culture depicted in “The Aftermath Of The Incident” by N. Kunjamohan Singh. The story was originally written in Manipuri language and it was translated into English version by Thounaojam Ratankumar Singh. The present study is done on the translated version. The story is taken from the Akademi award-winning Anthology of Manipuri Short Stories The Taste of an Hilsa and Other Stories. The story is about ordinary woman, a daily vendor trying to survive by selling dry fishes in the Imphal market. Manipuri literature contains violence because violence reveals the underlying conflicts in all social relationships and Manipur for the past 65 years is a war zone area. The study reveals the conflicted place from the eyes of the main protagonist Ketuki.
