Feminist Writing with Special Reference to Anita Nair?s Novel "Ladies Coupe"

Mayuri Kailas

The story is told in first person by Akhila, the protagonist, who is at first presented as a sympathetic figure: sacrificed her lifes dream to maintain a medium of normalcy for her sister and two brothers after her father was struck by a passing commuter bus. The protagonist, Akhila, forms a connecting thread that links the experiences of the other five women whom she meets in the ladies compartment of her train to Kanyakumari. Anita Nair, the author, highlights the positive role and positive transformation of women in the ongoing battle of establishing female selfhood. The more traditional a postcolonial society is, the more problematic the question of womens emancipation is, and, therefore, the more passionate its women writers are. No wonder, then, that Anita Nairs engrossing Ladies Coupe rises what many readers might consider taboo questions about the role of women in contemporary postcolonial India.
