Abstract

          Amitav Ghosh, the power voice from Calcutta born in July 1956, is noted for his distinctive writing strategy. Ghosh’s fiction is characterised by strong themes that may be somewhat identified with post-colonialism but could be labelled as historical novels. In 2007, he was awarded The Padmasree by the Indian Government.

An attempt at imaginative empathy characterizes all Ghosh’s writing and seems to be the product of a humanist concern to transcend culturally constructed differences. Ghosh’s Sahitya Academy Award winning novel (1989) The Shadow Lines focuses on a very particular personal history, the experience of a single family- as a microcosm for a broader national and international experience. The ‘Shadow Lines’ of the title represent the borders that divide people, and as in all Ghosh’s work one of the main emphasis is on the arbitrariness of cartographical demarcations. This novel insists on transcending political imperatives in favor of a broader humanism. Women characters such as Tha’mma, May Price and Ila play significant part in the spontaneous overflow of this novel.

Thus, through a detailed and unbiased analysis penetrating into the selected novel, the Dissertation makes an attempt to find out how the gender differences of the writer affects their portrayal of woman.

Key words: partition, dissatisfaction, Indian tradition, typical woman
