Since ancient time, women have been placed at the secondary role by the patriarchs in our society. They are given less important as compared to men. Our society always keeps women under their pressure because they have to do all the household chores, take care of the cattle, children and the other members of the family. Even the responsibility of the kitchen is given to them. In the modern context, women are doing jobs also but they have to do all the kitchen work of their homes apart from other duties. Men are generally given only one responsibility i.e. to earn bread for the family. Apart from that they usually play no significant role in the family. The present paper analyses the character of Geeta in Rama Mehta’s feminist novel Inside the Haveli in which Geeta faces many problems in her life in Udaipur city but finally she wins in her attempts.
