Abstract

Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one’s
ability to cope or integrate the emotions involved in with that experience or repeating the
events with the sense of being over whelmed that can be delayed by weeks years or even
decades as the person struggles to cope with the immediate circumstances eventually leading
to serious long term negative consequences. Anita Desai throw lights on such trauma under
went by monisha and break a new ground in the world of Indian – English fiction by shifting
the emphasis from the external to the internal world. She creates a world of her own which
she fills up with the extra ordinarily sensitive beings she eschews social documentation and
moralizing. It is not as though her novels are devoid of social purpose. Her novels delineate
the inner lives of hyper sensitive women who are in eternal quest for meaningful life in a way
“the true significance of things”.
