Gita Mehta is one of the most significant writers in Indian Writing in English whose writing mainly deals with Indian culture, tradition and political condition of India. Women are confined in the name of religion, customs, society and tradition. Most of Gita Mehta’s female protagonists want to break such social taboos and establish an identity in the society. A River Sutra is her second novel which was published in 1993. Mehta has touched up the sense of male dominance, racial discrimination and one’s continuous search for identity in this novel. This paper will show how the novel A River Sutra can be read from a feministic perspective. The key argument of the paper deals with women’s hardship, suffering and self-identity in the patriarchal society.
