The paper deals with the consciousness of the characters: extensively the relation within, from Rani Manicka’s novel “Touching Earth. The characters migrate from one place and try to adopt themselves with the other strange materialistic world. The semi autonomous attempts they make to seek their identity very often results in twofold consciousness. Every character revolves around a spider temple (a temple for sinners) and the sins and the repentance is taken into account. The characters commit sins voluntarily but they call it reluctant. The same characters when they deserve the returns for the sins they call it penalty. The Confrontation of temptations and the truth in the minds of the characters and oscillation of their consciousness from the entrapment of drug and prostitution to the repentance of their sins are investigated. The semi permanency of the consciousness and the split in their personality results in the plurality of consciousness in them.
