Dr. Vipin Kumar
The aim of the research is to analyse Mulk Raj Anand’s some of the celebrated short stories in order to deduce the major themes which he deals with. His entire corpus, however, expresses the predicament of human beings, especially that of the subjugated and oppressed, and Anand unmistakably portrays through his writings all the sordid aspects of our actions responsible for the sufferings. His short stories reveal a variety of themes like religious hypocrisy, social injustice, exploitation of the have-nots, tradition versus modernity, and the position of women in the traditional Indian society.
