Blurb/Shorttext:
It is time the images of women in real life as well as in literature needed both analysis and mutation. This book is a critical inquiry into how Manju Kapur, a contemporary Indian woman writer, in her five novels, has depicted diverse images of women and the traditional as well as modern roles they play, asserting themselves in the process without defying marriage and motherhood. Despite the fact that the cultural ethos has given the girls a sense of security, it has also burdened them with more responsibilities than the boys. As women are given a subaltern status in Indian society, Kapur’s women characters have been caught between tradition and modernity. And it is thoroughly investigated how these women struggle and suffer to demolish the age-old, oppressive customs forced on them in order to be emancipated. In her novels, one can find a feminocentric expostulation against phallocentric mores and values.
