Routing in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) is a complex one due to the absence of any central coordinator and infrastructure. Congestion is one of the prominent reasons for link-failure in network due to the heavy traffic which leads to failure of nodes, network partition and topology change. Due to power drainage among nodes, network topology changes and the nodes should be well adaptive to respond quickly to the changes. Various existing routing protocols forward the data packets towards the destination through the path having less number of hop counts.
