In Indian English writers Kamala Markandaya has occupied an extrusive place. She won name and fame all over the world with the publication of her very first novel Nectar in a Sieve, in 1954. The present paper aims at studying the novel Nectar in a Sieve, which deals with poverty, hunger and exploitation as the major theme. It is a first person narrative written in a reminiscent mood. Rukmani is the heroine-narrator of the story. Rukmani recollects her tale in a tranquil reverie. The novel is a poignant illustration of the courage and fortitude of a simple peasant woman Rukmani. Rukmani has returned home after her wanderings during which she had lost almost her everything.
