Routing algorithm have been proposed to solve node selection problem for forwarding the packets. Designing efficient routing approach for MANET is a challenging venture as here nodes have limited resource. Routing Protocols are categorized as Proactive, Reactive and Hybrid Protocols. Main challenges in MANET are that it needs dynamic routing which may results in frequent topological changes. In MANET routing overhead in terms of number of routing control messages must be minimized. In this paper we are trying to save the packets from being dropped by those nodes whose resource is going to be depleted in nearby future which will trim down the delay of messages and enhance packet delivery ratio. We have used NS2 tool and compared with basic routing algorithm.
