GLOBALIZATION AND ASSAMESE WOMEN: A STUDY OF THE NOVEL ‘‘SAHEBPURAR BOROSHUN’' BY ANURADHA SHARMA PUJARI
Keywords:Globalization, Literature, Patriarchy, Feminism
Globalization means a global interconnection. Globalization has given a new dimension to the world's literature. Literature has brought together cultures from different parts of the world so that people from one country can learn about the civilizations and cultures of other countries and improve their lives with that knowledge if necessary. The world literature created by globalization has created a new woman who refuses to be a part of the male-dominated society. Under the influence of globalization, women have become a force that has enabled them to judge their own existence. They are able to protest with their voices against the exploitation of the patriarchal society and demand equality with men. Women are now strong enough to live the life they want with their own psychological inspiration. This is the effect of globalization. This new identity of women we read in the pages of world literature is reflected in the creation of the popular writer Anuradha Sharma Pujari of Assam. This paper discusses the concept of new women created by globalization based on the popular novel ‘‘Sahebpurar Boroshun’' by Anuradha Sharma Pujari.
