Feminism in Shobha De's ‘Socialite evenings’


Author(s): Dr. Amit G Ramteke

Abstract: The Novel ‘Socialite Evenings’ by Shobha De is an expression of rebellious spirit that makes Karuna discontent with her middle class origins. The girl who can have her own identity and hold the belief on the principles of equality, freedom and justice without any discrimination on the ground of sex. For her marriage becomes ‘increasingly meaningless' and lovemaking a listless affair’. Unlike traditional Indian women she doesn't feign love to get control over her husband. However, like modelling she cannot dislodge her husband from her life on the plea that he is a bore. This boredom leads her to extra-marital relationship, breaking of marriage and finally to the space she has been carving for so long.
Writers feminist attitude directs the way towards the new exploration of female soul and psyche. It provider some controversial issues and modern practice of the world. She celebrates sex and globalizes her feminist stance, based on new moral values which make us agree to validate Shobha De as a women writer, of course a feminist.
