Abstract

The inward or inner agony, pressure and any other issues of women life are reflected in a peculiar way through the Nature or its natural objects of as we can clearly point out in the novels of Anita Desai. The female protagonists of the novels of Anita Desai could not express their inner feelings before their male partners or anybody as they express themselves properly and smoothly through Nature and its different Natural objects. In other words, we can say that life of the women protagonists in the novels of Anita Desai and Nature are closely connected with each other. As Nature and women both have the power of nurturing and sustenance, which means both of them carry maximum similar feminine qualities. So to maintain peace and equality in the society, we should have to understand the inward feelings of both women and Nature.
