FEMINISTIC PERSPECTIVE IN ANITA NAIRíS LADIES COUPE
Anita Nair is a living postmodern Indian woman writer in English. As a woman writer, she goes deep into the inner mind of the depressed women by virtue of their feminine sensibility and psychological insight and brings to light their issues, which are the outcome of Indian womenís psyche and emotional inequalities in a male dominated society.
Anita Nairís ďLadies CoupeĒ has turned out to be a great success. It is the story of a womenís search for freedom and womenís conditions in a male dominated society. The novel raises the questions whether the role of an Indian woman as a representative of other women, living under oppressive patriarchal systems in relation to cultural resistance, should be restricted only to their roles as wives and mothers. In such a world, womanís role is limited to reproduction regardless of her own desires and needs. Hence, this paper tries to point out how Anita Nair projects Indian feminism and attitude through women characters in her novels.
