Abstract

The major sphere of life for human kind is structured by society, culture and religion. Since the beginning of recorded history fertility has been one of man’s desired attributes and remains a pouring need for young couples today. The aim of this paper is to assess the living-in experiences of infertile women in India through Kamala Markandaya’s Nectar in a Sieve and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s Sister of My Heart. To be childless in India is almost a curse. It is a social anticipation to marry and have children to carry on the pedigree. It's not now a problem between husband and wife, it's a social problem.
