Abstract

Shobha De is a staunch feminist and rebel to some extent. A typical Indian feminist novel
records the suffering of urban middle class women in the patriarchal setup. This type of novel
generally includes growth of a girl in the Indian middle class family with her male siblings to
focus on gender discrimination; later on it focuses on the challenges of her married life where
she is unheard, neglected and suppressed. And finally this suppressed volcano of woman
protagonist results into liberty, self-respect and struggle for self-identity. Women writers like
Shashi Deshpande, Arundhati Roy, Anita Desai, Shobha De in India have changed traditional
picture of enduring, self-sacrificing women with new bold and liberated urban female
characters in their fiction.
