Mithlesh

Rabindranath Tagore’s novels reflected man and woman crushed under the yoke of foreign imperialism and poised on the threshold of the modern age. The India of Tagore was grappling with political subjugation and colonial modernity. The British rule ushered in an era of bourgeois capitalism and bourgeois culture. This resulted in altering the equations between the home and the world. The ‘inner-outer’ dichotomy, was transformed into a new binary- the home and the world- the world representing the external and material, while the home symbolized one’s true spiritual identity and the internal. The woman embodied the values of a nation and acted as a repository of its heritage and culture, while at the same time, was a pivot around which the entire family revolved.
