An exploration of the subjugation of women: A study of Dilip Kaur Tiwana’s autobiography a journey on bare feet and novel and such is her fate
This paper focuses on the patriarchal norms and conventions prevalent in the Indian society through the works of Dalip Kaur Tiwana including her biography Nange Pairan da Safar translated into English as A Journey of Bare Feet and another literary work Eho Hamara Jeevana translated into English as and such is Her Fate. In both of these books Tiwana has recorded the incidents happened in the lives of various female characters including herself and she also tries to highlight in both the works that how female are considered as a weaker sex than male and division of labour is also done on this basis and they end up becoming sheer commodities and puppets in the hands of male dominating society and they are not even allowed to raise their voices against the brutalities. Tiwana herself suffers humiliation and atrocity in the hands of her first husband but at last she breaks down the shackles of the so called chauvinistic society and she emerges as new woman with new identity and she also becomes hope for other women in the society.
