Women as Prisoners of Patriarchy: A Study through Rabindranath Tagore’s Chokher Bali

Country India
Abstract This paper is an attempt to decode the dualities in characteristics and the versatilities of Tagore`s women owing to their relevance till date. The paper highlights the indifference of the patriarchal society which oppresses women even after their differences. The paper also highlights issues of women illiteracy, child marriage and explores the consequences of extramarital affair.
The translated version of Chokher Bali by Krishna Kripalani has been studied for developing the paper. The paper explores the eccentric ideas and role of women as the most significant transformation factor within the social dimensions through chapters two and three. The second chapter discusses Ashalata and Binodini as polar opposites, representing the former as the conventional Indians woman and the later as a protest against the prevalence. The third chapter decodes their similarities in sufferings, and the indifference of a society, that ensures uniformity of injustice to both of Tagore`s women despite of their differences.
