Women in Sashi Deshpande’s small remedies: A critical analysis
Author(s): Y Kusuma Kumari
Abstract: Sashi Deshpande is one of the renowned Indian woman writers writing in English. Sashi Deshpande is entirely different from any of her contemporary women novelists. She stands apart from them. Her writings are complex but seamlessly woven narratives which explore the lives of people, especially women. Unconsciously, her writing is related to the modern Indian woman’s beleaguered existence. Her recent novel, ‘Small Remedies’, published in the first decade of 21st century will make rich contribution to women’s studies. The central theme of this novel seems to be in search of individual autonomy, and self-realization in the web of family relations.
