Classical study of Rupa Bhajwa's novel with special reference to the Marxist theory
Farooq Ahmed and Dr. Nupur Sharma
Rupa Bajwa through the protagonist Ramchand opens up a window to her world and presents a society which is full of snobbery, deceit and artificiality. A Society where rich people are enjoying all the privileges and are extremely extravagant and on the other hand it depicts a society where poor people are barely able to make both ends meet and are denied the very basic fundamental right to being. The story brings forth substantial insights into the contemporary Indian society and the constant struggles o f a commoner for a better life, his desires, and aspirations and his failures and inabilities to fulfil his dreams. The band of realism that runs throughout the story brings us face to face with the realities of life, where a poor man the protagonist of th e story better called a subaltern, is bound to suffer and leads a mundane life of misery after all his efforts end up in nothingness. Ramchand a salesman at the Sevak Sari House and Kamla, wife of Chander are the representatives of marginalised people. Rup a Bajwa’s “The Sari Shop” set in the little city of Amritsar captures evocatively, the social atmosphere of smalltown India.
