From Trauma to Self-Realization: Women In Shashi Deshpande’S Fiction |

Rupinder Kaur, in Journal of Advances and Scholarly Researches in Allied Education | Multidisciplinary Academic Research


I’m not writing of all those innocent young girls I’vewritten of till now; girls who ultimately mated themselves with the rightmen.  Nor am I writing a story of acallous, insensitive husband and a sensitive, suffering wife.  I’m writing of us.  Of Mohan and me.  And I know this – you can never be theheroine of your own story. Self-revelation is a cruel process. The realpicture, the real ‘you’ never emerges. Looking for it is as bewildering as trying to know how you reallylook.  Ten different mirrors show you tendifferent faces.1  (TLS-1)
