Mulk Raj Anand
Lajwanti and Other Stories
In Lajwanti, Mulk Raj Anand focuses on a woman's predicament and struggle to find an identity for herself. Frustrated by a rigid pattern of social relationships, gender bias, religious bigotry and her own petty human foibles, her abject condition serves as a metaphor for sacrifice and servility which form the thematic heart of these stories.
