From Silent Suffering to Strong Self Identity: A Study of Anees Jung’s Breaking the Silence
Keywords:Post Independence, Man-Woman relationship, Problems, Male-dominated, Silent suffering, Self-identity
Anees Jung is one of the widely read post–independence Indian English women writers who write consciously of the issues that concern the educated middle-class women in Indian society. She attempts to closely analyze man-woman relationship within the family and the contemporary social set-up. She focuses on the captivating problems and the suffocating environs of her female characters who struggle hard in this malicious and male-dominated world to discover their true self identity. Jung does not advocate separation from the partner but a diplomatic assertion of one’s identity from silent suffering.
