Abstract

The paper seeks to explore the themes surrounding Nayantara Sahgal's personal and political history through her earlier works, which weave together the past of individual lives with the historical past of India. It is always acknowledged that politics is a component of society. Her uncle's insights into global history had an impact on her. Her historical and political consciousness informed her works. Isabel Allende, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Graham Greene are among the authors who have influenced her. Nehru's diplomatic foreign policy is the novel's high point. She uses a variety of political life aspects to seamlessly merge the personal and the political. She places emphasis on the humanistic principles she adheres to, and the story turns into an examination of life quality. Her stories possess a warm, intimate quality.
