Contemporary Indian Literature in English Translation

Question 1:

Discuss the woman’s point of view by referring to texts written by women. What are their themes and concerns?


The first instances of Indian women writing in English trace all the way back to the final quarter of the nineteenth century. This is a watershed moment for feminism in India. One of the primary reasons for Indian women’s thinking to modernise was their access to English education. Women were motivated to seek an English education due to the expansive opportunities for higher education, which had a noticeable effect on women’s standing.

Indian women were exposed to Western culture, ideas, philosophy, literature, and movements that were both attractive and thought- provoking. They were given the opportunity to show their Indianness in their newly acquired English.

Indian writing in English is gaining momentum at a breakneck pace. It ushered in a new era of fiction and garnered countless accolades both at home and abroad. In India, women authors have begun to challenge the patriarchal hegemony of the past. They are no longer in man’s hands like puppets.

They have established their value in the area of literature on both a qualitative and quantitative level, and they continue to do so with ease today. There were fewer female writers in the early phases. Their works aid the reader in comprehending the female psychology, as well as the emotions and ambitions of women in a changing society. Mahashweta Devi’s writings include the following: With reference to Mahashweta Devi’s narrative ‘Salt,’ the perspective and concerns of female writers shift in response to the present situation.

Devi’s narrative ‘Salt’ depicts the hardship of tribal people who were dispossessed of arable forest land during the Kole Revolt of 1831 by Hindu businessmen. The story’s central subject is exploitation, emphasising the plight of the innocent tribals who are exploited by everyone in a position of authority. One of Mahasweta’s primary concerns, both in her fiction and in her activist works, is the rejection of indigenous land rights.

She recounts the catastrophic results of “progress” in the Palamau area in her essay “The Slaves of Palamau” (1983): “At one time, the territory boasted of huge forests. Today, the rainforests have been mostly gone, and the region is characterised by dry upland” (11). She details the rise of the bonded labour system in the region following the suppression of the oppressed people’s rebellion against the British and the jagirdars in 1857.

Anita Desai’s Writings: Anita Desai is another of India’s outstanding novelists of English literature. She occupies a unique position among modern Indian women authors. Desai’s female protagonists fight against patriarchal society in order to discover their own potential or to live on their own terms, regardless of the consequences. They adopt the position of outsiders in order to combat and critique the cultural ideas that obstruct their development as autonomous persons. For these women, self-chosen retreat becomes a weapon for survival in a patriarchal culture.

Thus, Desai’s women desire equality within the community of men and women, as this is the only way to achieve their goals. Indeed, Desai’s ideal of an emancipated woman, Bimala, is an unmarried lady in the novel Clear Light Of Day. Maya in Cry, a Peacock, Monisha in The City, Nanda in Fire in the Mountain, and Sita in Where Shall We Go This Summer? are all married female characters. Develop depression, violence, or self-destructive behaviour.

They either lose their sanity or commit acts of violence against others, or they commit suicide or self-destruction. These women’s nemesis is not personal; it is a result of their complicated societal contexts, direct familial situations, and connections with their males. Desai’s characters are frequently shown as single women.

Desai does not disregard the institution of marriage or advocate for social estrangement. Certain of her female characters, such as Tara in ‘Clear Light of Day,’ do find happiness in their marriages. Rather than that, Desai demonstrates a form of feminist liberation via Bimala, emphasising the need of not confining women to their conventional roles but rather extending and waking them to numerous alternative options.

Apart from being energising, their way of life liberates them from male reliance. The Writings of Arundhati Roy: Arundhati Roy, born in 1961 in Bengal, is the study’s other well-known and respected author. Arundhati was born and raised in Kerala. According to her, a feminist is “a woman who negotiates her way into a position of choice.” With her debut work The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy established herself as an artist. ‘The End of Imagination’ and ‘The Greater Common Good’ are two of Roy’s key articles.

Arundhati has never professed to being a feminist, yet her novel, ‘The God of Small Things,’ exposes her feminist viewpoint in several places, and her protagonist embodies feminine sensibility. In’The God of Small Things,’ Roy appears to be an iconoclast.

The novel’s stylistic innovations distinguish it and infuse it with energy and enthusiasm. The work is one-of-a-kind in every way, and it serves as a linguistic experiment with the English language. The stylistic writings include the use of vernacular words, phrases, and even sentences, the use of italics, subject-less sentences, erroneous spellings, topicalisation, deviation from conventional word order, single word’sentences,’ changing word classes, clustering word classes, and a variety of other techniques. She has made ecology and subalternity the novel’s central topics.

Roy’s other works demonstrate her keen observations and the minute details involved in the development of her creative abilities. Her two significant online essays are titled ‘The End of Imagination’ and ‘The Greater Common Good.’ Roy criticises the Indian government’s nuclear policy in The End of Imagination.

In The End of Imagination, Arundhati Roy foresees the destructive effects of nuclear weapons on humans and the environment. This demonstrates that women authors have worked their way up from tough to tribal and rural regions, but they have all demonstrated sympathy for women and their issues.

The breadth of issues they have covered has made a significant contribution to raising awareness for modern women worldwide. They deserve recognition for the breadth of issues they cover in light of the Indian context. While some of the writers have not professed to be feminists, their writings indicate that their inner spirit and sentiments are solely for the benefit of women.
