Custom versus Contemporary Reality in Socialite Evening.

Dr. Daxa Ganpatsinh Thakor

Abstract :

A close study of the novel Socialite Evening reveals De’s protest against the good and ideal image of woman in the name of tradition or custom. She tries her best to describe here those all attitudes of the society which reveal the female section of the society oppressed and submissive. Then she moves to the requirement and expectations of the modernity, the impact of western culture which has made our woman full of woman consciousness and through that more bold and explosive. But in doing this, if any human being may be male or female tries to cross the moral boundaries, his or her status or image will be fractured. And at the cost of mental place and physical comfort he or she has to suffer a lot. So at last in the novel we see that to some extent the women characters of the novel do agree with the traditional code of conduct for women in the society. No doubt, they accept them with certain modification as they wish.
