The part of myths in Githa Hariharan’s novel: The Thousand Faces of Night
Author(s): Dr. N Palani
Abstract: India is a country with rich cultural, heritage, and cultural values. The woman in India is respected as mother and goddess but at the same time she has been oppressed and denied recognition of her invisible work. The conventional roles of women as portrayed by many writers of the past and the expectations of the society have been changed and women have started representing themselves as human beings with equal educational opportunities, emotions, responsibilities so on and so forth on par with men. Githa Hariharan mainly focuses on the ceaseless quest for self-realization and liberation from the rigid social structure in which the Indian woman is a constant and endless sufferer.
