Abstract

The present paper examines the representation and presentation of women especially female protagonists Dilnavaz and Roxana in Rohinton Mistry’s novels Such A Long Journey (1991) and Family Matters (2002). It is widely acknowledged that women are the epitome of strength, love and care but the subjugation and prejudice behind their smiles are unnoticed. Mistry has highlighted how a family grooms in the hands of women who are docile and tolerant through his fictions.   The protagonists Dilnavaz and Roxana have brought up their family members in well-mannered and disciplined way. Even during the times of commotion and obnoxious, they both are strong and adamant in their decisions and attempted to bring the harmony back into their family. The proposed study attempts to focus on the passive yet strong and pride Indian housewives who constantly bring about the changes which they wish to see in their family.
