Abstract

One of the most renowned voices of Indian writing in English in the contemporary times, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni depicts unrelenting skirmishes of Indian women against the norms of traditional Indian society and its prevalent patriarchal set up. Most of her female characters are bold and courageous, and are keen to take cudgels against the society while struggling to define their place in the conflicting environments. The present paper endeavours to highlight women’s daunting spirit and attitude towards life due to the mutual relationship of tending between them that help them enhance their capacity to thrive and to move ahead in life irrespective of all the odds against them. The paper analyses how Indian women, crystallized in the matrix of patriarchy, do their best to cope with the challenges of the male world, and if their efforts fail female-bonding helps them reorganize their lives.

Keywords: Patriarchy, Female-bonding, Subjection, Subversion, Marriage.
