Abstract: Shobha De, one of the modern Indian women novelist probes into the fathoms of the psyche of the modern woman and her cares and qualms in her fiction. She explores the world of the modern urban woman as her novels are the slice of urban life. They deal with contemporary issues related to subjugated and marginalized women. She realistically presents an intimate side of the urban woman's life in her novels and at the same time reveals her plight in the present-day society. It is a fact that the woman is a victim everywhere of the prevalent social norms. She gets trapped within the set moral codes and social norms of society and consequently leads to an unhappy life. The woman of urban life is no exception to it.
