NEW PERSPECTIVE OF WOMEN IN
Volume: 1 Issue: 2 2011
Nayanatra Sahgal is one of the most luminous literary luminaries of Indo-Anglian novelists. Her female characters come from the different sections of the society. In her novels, there is no sign of traditional and conventional views like „Frailty, thy name is woman‟ or „Woman is a bundle of sin‟. She shows in her novels how the mind of a woman passes through unremitting pain. Sahgal‟s woman refuses to be an acquiescent, suffering and sacrificing lot. She wants her individual identity and fulfillment. Sahgal is of the opinion that “everything around the writer is material for novel…All material comes from real life….generally draws on one‟s own experience or someone else‟s experience”.1 I think it‟s the artist‟s job and the writer‟s job particularly to show the way.” 2 Thus her novels have autobiographical element and impression.
