Man is critical of rational totalitarian in the modern world. Man is victim of extremely modern world experience. Deprived of high social interactions, the underground man tries to relate to the world according to the codes and examples of mythical, religious, legendry, historical knowledge, which symbolizes human nature. The modern man is failed to attempt luxurious world of pleasure, and stared driving himself into further deeper underground. Though there is accepted notion of world becoming rich, there is a man dwelling in the underground. He is a product of troubled relationships. His condition is relevant to the rational world. The position of human existence is a conglomeration of many philosophies, ideologies, which result multiple personality disorders. One may easily dismiss this entire work supposedly written as a work of fantasy but at least it may read as an interesting study of a troubled mind. In this paper, suspended nature of true life is tried to bring forth. The basic essence of individual’s thought and behavior is actually resulting of pain and torture that is being experienced all through life. Logic will never always work out with emotions. It is to bring forth Dostoevsky’s underground man relatively present in today’s society.
