Abstract

In order to develop an identity, several Indian women novelists have given their Female subjectivity. Representation of Psychological Exploration of Women is a major thematic elementin Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's novel. Although feminism is a recurring subject in her works, she explores it via fragmentation. To demonstrate the prevalence of psychological feelings of women in Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's writing, I conduct an exhaustive textual investigation of her first full length book, The Mistress of Spices (1997), in this paper. In 2005, the film "The Mistress of Spices" was based on this novel. She hopes that readers of her work would consider the female characters from a feminist perspective.
