Feminine Sensibility in God of Small Things
Assistant Professor & Head, Department of English, Mahant Laxmi Narayan Das College, Raipur (C.G.).
Perhaps, no other single work of fiction has made such a momentous impact in Indian English Literature in recent years as Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things. She is one of the few Indian English writers actively interested in contemporary socio-political issues which are amply evidenced in a number of articles, interviews and books she wrote on various topics in recent years. The God of small things is about several themes - one of the chief issues it brings into focus is the family and social mechanism evolved over centuries in traditional Indian society to suppress woman and her independence as a human being.
Key Words: Fiction, God of Small Things, Socio-political Issues.
