Abstract:

 

The first Indian novel in English by Bankim Chandra was Rajmohan’s Wife. Though the novel is about the events in life of Matangini, her introduction to the world was given as someone’s wife. From being invisible as an individual to being portrayed as leaders, scientists, etc female characters in the world of English fiction have come a long way.

Indian society has traditionally been divided into a number of segments on the basis of class, caste, religion, rich, poor, privileged, underprivileged, etc. Developments and transitions for every segment came at different time and in varied ways. The revolution in the world of fairer sex has thus been non linear, women as a group have not grown together but along with the segment they belonged.

The study focuses on four novels by four authors written in different time period describing the social conditions and the status of women in the Indian society. All the four writers are progressive and given to the cause of presenting the social reality of the country.

The present study undertakes one novel of each novelist:

The Guide by R K Narayan

Nectar in a Sieve by Kamala Markandaya

Difficult Daughters by Manju Kapur

The Hungry Tides by Amitav Ghosh

 

Key words:  society, struggle, family, decision, profession
