Sigmund Freud said once to Marie Bonaparte: ‘The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a woman want?” This is the gap that the male text has created since the genesis and which can be filled up only by a text created by a female writer who doesn’t follow the male ordained formula of expectations for creating or understanding a woman. Anita Nair is one such writer who through her narratives and reconstructions of the collective psyche of women in India in particular has permanently has carved a place for herself for her unique understanding of women’s own mind. FICTION AND ANITA NAIR is an exploration of how to see through the consciousness of women and understand ‘What a woman wants?’
