Marching to Marginalized social and cultural barriers in Anita Nair’s “Ladies Coupe”
Role of women from time immemorial has been very low and limited. Women were treated either as a possession or as a self-less worker. Religion and myths gave more respect for men and degenerated women in India. According to Hindu philosophy, women had no right to study the Vedas and so literacy became a rare quality among women for many ages. “The values and ideals of a culture are ingrained in its myths and stories in turn construct and define the culture and perpetuate its values.” (Bande 172) This was deliberately made by the parochial male dominated society to keep women ignorant and submissive.
