Literature by women presents an “imaginative gamut”. In women novelists, a commonality of motifs is observed. They deal with gender issues and roles, female subjectivity, exploitation a oppression, the concept of being “other” in a patriarchal society, the theme of subjugation right from the birth till death and the clash between tradition and modernity. This paper tries to highlight the sexual predicament in Anita Nair’s novels. She focuses primarily on the psychological exploration of inner mind of Indian women in Indian novels in English. The writer being woman permeate deep into the inner mind of the depressed women by virtue of their feminine sensibility and psychological insight and bring to light their issues, which are the outcome of Indian women’s psychological and emotional inequalities in a male dominated society.
