Contemporary Social Issues in Jhabvala’s “The Nature of Passion”

Science, education and in particular women were mounting.

A sense of alienation and unsettlement was a sequel to this transformation, for modernization set in motion a disturbance in the traditional pattern of Indian life without providing any viable alternatives.
