Abstract
Manju Kapur is one of the most successful Indian women authors in English who stands for women rights. Her amazing works have enhanced the Indian English fictional realm. Her compositions, with a delicate appeal, portray the true challenges in the lives of Indian women. She is a feminist writer who speaks out against women’s plight in a patriarchal culture where social, cultural, and political factors stand in the way of a new woman. In the cluster of Indian novelists in English, Indian women also find their place with their male counterparts by their significant writings to the enrichment of Indian English novels. In the past, the works of women writers were not considered worthwhile. Women are always considered as inferior, submissive, unrewarded characters in the male writings. Women are being respected but their emotions , ideas, thinking are being unvalued. It is the modern women writers who have added a value to the woman’s life through their writings. Indian woman novelists have turned a new phase into a woman’s world where they introspect their life and find their place and identity. Many literary figures like Kiran Desai, Shashi Despande, Kamala Markandaya, Manju Kapur and so on have given a second thought, a new outlook to woman’s life other than being a daughter, a wife and a mother. She is seen as a Woman with life in Manju Kapur’s, “A Married Woman”.
