Unsustainable moral fibre of protagonists in Anita Nair’s ladies coupe and Manju Kapur’s the immigrant
Author(s): Myrna L Pios
Abstract: This paper is an attempt to probe deeply into the unsustainable nature of the female protagonists of Anita Nair’s Ladies Coupe and Manju Kapur’s The Immigrant, though they have strongly been portrayed by the authors. The study argues that Akhila and Nina both are really not the self-emerged females. Because of their inconsistent moral fibre and self-indulgent liberty in their lives, we merely sense a stench of their sweat instead of the fragrance of toil. The present paper tries to reveal that with the misinterpretation of self-independent, self-identity and self-emergence, how miserably Akhila and Nina fall as the victims of Moral deterioration.
