This study aims to investigate the protagonist; Saleem’s journey for searching the self and the endurance he has faced to discover the reality. The objective of this study is to get the spiritual way to accomplish personality. A scrutiny of the text demonstrates that Saleem bears the characteristics like Buddha (Four Noble Truths) sketched out by Guatama Buddha. To shape the theoretical structure of this exploration Gautama Buddha's philosophy of life (four Noble truths) had been used. Saleem's character has been concentrated under the focal point of the Spiritual setting. Saleem strays into the wild to look for confidence like Buddha. He doesn't surrender his mission as he gets back to his loved ones and discovers that confidence can be found and polished among his community. The play presents the wonders of picking up God's interest by making harmony between the physical and spiritual world. The play makes a profound figure, who isn't cut off from the physical world, and faces and searches the arrangement of his issues. The play presents a pioneer like Buddha who has a typical existence and accomplishes his happiness in having the option to go through a time on earth which unravels ordinary undertakings. As there is a lack of analysis on Foothold thusly, the understandings for this exploration have been gotten from buddha's works. This exploration would be valuable to those scholars who wish to consider the Foothold in a postcolonial setting. Besides, the extent of this task stretches out to Sufism, Mysticism, and Imagism.
