There are communities in the India of today that find themselves in the cleft stick of having to speak without having a language to speak in. For example, LGBT's, farming communities, the labour classes, the artisan classes, classes of people generally that inhabit the backwaters of society. About 50% of the country's women hasn't found such a language or medium to express itself. Man has been double-crossing woman, denying her the voice to speak up. In this third novel of the author, there is an attempt to discover unshackled new paths. This novel negotiates with it at two levels. To begin with, her physical body is woman's language. She speaks through its enormous 'performing, creating, authoring ability', its vitality and sympathy with the world. The novel engages in an in-depth exploration of woman's independent or autonomous situatedness in life. Woman is not weak. But she is made weak. Without a husband and with no material object or framework as an anchor, Savitri goes about building life not for herself or for her children, but for firming up the bond between her human environment and nature: she does it through decentralizing power centres that . are arrayed in front of her.
