A Study on Disharmonious and Distressful Relationship of Man and Woman “A Liberated Woman”


Dr. Rashmi Singh

Deshpandes fiction focuses on a womans awareness of her situation, her desire to be recognized as an individual with an independent social image rather than as a woman, the shadow of her man. Deshpande portrays her woman protagonists rebel against her man-woman relationships, first, in the form of father-daughter and then in the form of husband-wife. In the later, Deshpande makes her women character go through such a marital relationship, that even pleasure becomes an illusion for them and lovemaking is degraded to a state of lustful, cruel, satiation of physical desire by the man. Happiness becomes a dream with grief attaining reality status. In A Liberated Woman, the protagonist is a lady doctor through whom Deshpande has come back to her favorite theme disharmonious and distressful of man-woman relationship. Deshpandes woman protagonist, trapped in an unhappy marriage with a husband who has only apathy for her as he is not able to digest her success as a professional. Deshpandes narrator expresses her pain and anguish as a reflection of the failure of her husband-wife relationship. Each statement of narration sounds as an anguished emotional cry of the hurt felt in her deep wounds. As she expresses her pain, she also laments on her unsuccessful marital relationship due to the weakness of the male psyche as she opines, that, I cant cry, the birds may hear. I cant fight back either, hes too strong for me. (A Liberated Woman: 27)
