Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to highlight the shifting images of Indian women in relation to traditional and modern values. The Feministic analysis on Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things help to focus on this point of view. Roy's tales depict how the tribal Dalit woman try to make an attempt to build her life and identity in her own unique way. But these indigenous people are caught between tradition and Caste Conflicts. Through her work, Arundhati Roy have cultivated a fearlessness in expressing the thoughts. Writers like her strive to represent the dictatorial chauvinistic canons and traditional superstitious notions of Indian society that have bound women within the cobweb of marriage and the iron wall of caste, religion, culture, and tradition through their creative masterpieces. The primary ideas they perceive are centred on the domestic terrain; family life, sexual relationships, gender discrimination, socio-political turmoil, and the desire for peaceful coexistence, in which a woman attempts to carve out a space for herself.

Keywords:

Discrimination, Tradition, Chauvinism, Feminine, Dictatorship.
