    Abstract :
    Plantation is the place of exploitation and ingrains into capitalism and feudalism. It is the heart of paradise and the device of the plantation economy, the house in the middle of a tamed landscape. The plantation is a decadent, a sealed place that cannot evolve because it is built on slavery. The blending of poverty and slavery figurine decorum highlights the plight of plantation regime. They are eroticized and their scars are paraded as epitomes of white’s supremacy, and inscribed in the world history alike. Even the whole plantation is intertwined with the beautiful backdrop, there is no more a romance, love or beauty, it only includes bitterness, violence and exploitation and injustice to the poor coolies. The aim of this paper is to project the trauma on bonded laborers in select Indian and African plantations novels.
