Widow with sons: Ideal and real lives of women in the works of Premchand
The scanty literature on women, however, still remains somber, especially in regards of modern history. Literature is constructed socially but it is too political. Writers have a spontaneous ability to capture the articulation in their works deeper human concerns and strong desires that are analyzed socially, academically, politically with the methodological constraints and concentration on the facts used to support a proposition based on ascertainable evidences, can ever convey. The orientation of women to social reality and the ‘ideals’ of womanhood significantly formed by the models of womanly conduct, explained in the stories of Premchand [1880-1936] as the most eminent figure in the modern Indian history, who had a phenomenal impact on North Indians.
