Relationship, Money, Character, Family, Sudha Murthy
In every aspect of a man’s life, money plays a crucial role. In fact, we can say that even a day cannot be spent without it. Without a doubt, one must endure numerous hardships to earn it. Many people devote their entire lives to its acquisition. Even when they are young, they are unable to comprehend that life is fleeting and that they must enjoy it with their family. They might develop diseases as they get older, and they might be unable to leave their home. The topic of this paper is family dynamics and how money affects family relationships in Sudha Murthy's novels. The lives of city technocrats who succumb to status and consumerism are depicted in Sudha Murthy's novels. Because life is like a battle, they fail to live it to its fullest. Additionally, her female protagonists are exceptionally intelligent, tenacious, and determined. They are not the stereotypical, helpless Indian women that are frequently depicted in media or literature. Fragments from one’s own family during a time when wealth and power prevail. In her novel, innovative Indian author Sudha Murthy relates Dollar Bahu and House of Cards with gentleness, focusing on practical issues that women face in contemporary society. She talks about relationships between men and women and how a partner’s ambition can hurt a well-managed relationship. In order to comprehend her freedom as an independent woman, this paper examines the knowledgeable woman’s role as a wife in a love marriage, her submissive life as she struggles with loneliness and becomes submissive to her husband’s egotistical tendencies. The loss he suffered and the values he lost are thoroughly examined in this paper. It also examines how his ego caused him to lose his family as a result of his wealth accumulation.
