A portrayal of male characters in Bharati Mukharjee’s the tiger’s daughter
Bharti Mukherjee’s male characters belong to various ethnic, cultural and religious groups world over. Their life is marked by absence of cultural identity born of racism, sexism and social oppression. They are human beings with those weaknesses and strong points which creatures of flesh and blood are supposed to have. her male characters are no match to the female ones. They have to be so because they are the creations of a feminist who has to make them a tool of her ideas of man-woman relationship.
