    Ali Fathima Shanavaz

    Chapter from the book: Menon, N et al. 2023. Indian Electronic Literature Anthology: Volume I.


    The article focuses on the problems of middle class Indian Muslim family, where a girl’s perspective on marriage is very revolting because she does not see herself as a bride which technically, she is, after her two months marriage. Unmarried girls are perceived as burden in most of the families and society before marriage, nevertheless after marriage she must ‘fit in’ or survive in a family which pretends to be her family. It is not because she is against it but because this marriage is always seen as a qualification for girls to join socio-economic society. The institution of marriage is a significant part for even society; however, it also makes people vulnerable in many aspects whether economically, physically, and psychologically. Life after marriage is a real deal, as a bride has to inhabit in two worlds which are not complete.
