Indranath and Giribala--The Young Adult Dystopian Characters in the "Moth Eaten Howdah of the Tusker"
Sharma, Malavika
Journal on English Language Teaching, v5 n2 p19-27 Apr-Jun 2015
Indian women have always been viewed as the object of desire. In the advent of Technological Advancement women are still thought of as inferior to men. Though there is an increase in the literacy rate of the girl child, it does not imply the emancipation of the girl child. Women are bound by the social customs and traditions. In this sense women are not empowered. The word empowerment is misrepresented as the increase in working women. In such a scenario Indian women writers in English have portrayed the challenges women confront at home, in the workplace as well as in their social interactions. Indira Goswami in her Novel "The Moth Eaten Howdah of the Tusker" boldly describes the plight of the women especially the widows and hopes to instill change in the minds of the society. The present paper aims to analyse the characters of Indranath and Giribala from the perspective of Young Adult Dystopian protagonist.
