Gauri as Woman Protagonist in Mulk Raj Anand’s Novel

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Through this novel “Gauri” Mulk Raj Anand expresses his indisputable concern for the suffering humanity of India. It forces one to ask a few questions about the Indian character of woman. We call the woman as ‘Mother’, ‘Goddess’ and claim that our society always been given due respect to women. At the same time, we also beat them ablaze or turn them out of the house. Mulk Raj Anand’s novel Gauri eloquently exposes the hypocrisy of our society. It not only voices a strong protest against ill treatment of women but also explores through the example of Gauri what woman in India should do for her emancipation.
