Psycho-analysis march and retreat of sita in where shall we go this summer?
Yazher Arafath M
Indian society, undoubtedly, is marching ahead at the path of development but still assigns traditional roles to the woman. Woman cannot come out of these customary roles because of conservative outlook of the male dominated society. She is imprisoned in the four walls of the house where there is no one else to share her grief. Even if she is provided with the material comforts, she, the voiceless, tries hard to let others listen to her agony which goes unheard in most of the cases. The present paper aims at focusing the problems and the psychological trauma faced by the woman in Anita Desai’s Where Shall We Go This Summer? And it also shows how the predicament of the loneliness is experienced by the married woman and how the marital discord, which lead the woman to astray, severs the life of Sita, the protagonist.
