SHASHI DESHPANDE'S THAT LONG SILENCE: - THE REALISTIC DEPICTION OF THE COMPLEXITIES OF INDIAN WOMEN'S LIVES

Neeta Audichya

Abstract


The present paper focused on Shashi Deshpande’s novel That Long Silence, on her portrayal of the complexities of Indian women’s lives through her women characters .The novelist had tried to depict the cause of their submissive position in society. Agreeing to the novelist, only patriarchy was not responsible for their miserable position in society. The passivity on behalf of the women and their succumbing to the traditional roles of wife, mother, etc. were equally responsible for their subjugation. Women should not victimise themselves, they should try to erase the silence and they should try to render articulation to their inner conflicts. She uncovers the intuitive and oblivious mind of her characters. Her female characters are touchy, hesitant, splendid and inventive.The women are especially trapped during the time spent rethinking and rediscovering their own jobs, position and relationship inside their given social world.
