Family Life and Individual Freedom Theme Icon

At the heart of many of the character’s stories lies a common search for freedom to be oneself and to carve out one’s own life path. The needs and desires of the individual are in constant tension with the demands of the family, which is the central social institution throughout the novel.

Uma’s desire for freedom is the central example: Constrained by her family’s needs and expectations, Uma yearns to be free, pushing against her family wherever possible. Uma’s desires are in constant check by her parents, yet she develops a freedom of spirit in her own world. Mira-masi, Ramu, and Dr. Dutt all represent freedom from family expectations and social roles. Leading very independent lives, they have defected from their traditional family roles and defied societal expectations. Not surprisingly, all of these characters are unmarried. Marriage, with the exception of Mrs. Joshi and Aruna’s example, almost consistently threatens individual freedom by melting two people into one—as symbolized by Uma’s reference to her parents as one entity: MamaPapa. Further, this melding through marriage usually comes to the detriment of the woman, who ends up being subservient to the man. While gender expectations inhibit both Uma and Anamika’s freedoms, it is the confines of marriage in particular which prove so brutal for Anamika’s freedom and her life.

Arun, having never had the choice of his surroundings or his life paths, tries to live as independently as possible in the United States. While in America, Arun tries to avoid situations that involve integrating himself into families and other tight-knit groups, feeling he can be himself only when he is by himself. For the Pattons, the family structure deteriorates, becoming oppressive in its inability to serve the needs and desires of its members. In their American individualism, they neglect each other. Mrs. Patton’s determination to present a harmonious family image prevents her from seeing the real problems of her children. Mr. Patton tries to control his family by ensuring that everyone is productive. Neither parent nor child try to form genuine relationships, making family a false haven for its members.

One could be forgiven for thinking Papa’s chosen role was scowling, Mama’s scolding. Since every adult had to have a role, and these were their parents’, the children did not question their choices. At least, not during their childhoods.

Mama was frantic to have it terminated. She had never been more ill (…) but Papa set his jaws. They had two daughters, yes, quite grown-up as anyone could see, but there was no son. Would any man give up the chance of a son?

Chapter 3 Quotes

More than ever now, she was Papa’s helpmeet, his consort. He had not only made her his wife, he had made her the mother of his son (…) Was this love? Uma wondered disgustedly, was this romance? Then she sighed, knowing such concepts had never occurred to Mama: she did not read, she did not go to the cinema.

Chapter 4 Quotes

To Mira-masi, the gods and goddesses she spoke of, whose tales she told, were her family, no matter what Mama might think (…) Uma, with her ears, and even her fingertips tingling, felt that here was someone who could pierce through the dreary outer world to an inner world, tantalizing in its colour and romance. If only it could replace this, Uma thought hungrily.

Chapter 8 Quotes

Uma’s ears were already filled to saturation with Mama’s laments, and Aruna’s little yelps of laughter were additional barbs (…) The tightly knit fabric of family that had seemed so stifling and confining now revealed holes and gaps that were frightening—perhaps the fabric would not hold, perhaps it would not protect after all. There was cousin Anamika’s example, the one no one wanted to see: but how could one not?

Chapter 9 Quotes

When it was that she had plunged into the dark water and let it close quickly and tightly over her, the flow of the river, the current, drew her along (…) It was not fear she felt, or danger. Or rather, these were only what edged something much darker, wilder, more thrilling, a kind of exultation—it was exactly what she had always wanted, she realized.

Chapter 11 Quotes

A career. Leaving home. Living alone. These trembling, secret possibilities now entered Uma’s mind—as Mama would have pointed out had she known—whenever Uma was idle. (…) But Uma could not visualize escape in the form of a career. What was a career? She had no idea.

Chapter 12 Quotes

She sloshes some milk into the coffee. ‘Rosebuds. Wild Waltz. Passionately,’ she screams at them silently. She tosses in the sugar. ‘Madly. Vows. Fulfill,’ her silence roars at them. She clatters a spoon around the cup, spilling some milk into the saucer, and thrusts it at Papa. ‘Here,’ her eyes flash through her spectacles, ‘this, this is what I know. And you, you don’t.’

No, he had not escaped. He had travelled and he had stumbled into what was like a plastic representation of what he had known at home; not the real thing—which was plain, unbeautiful, misshapen, fraught and compromised—but the unreal thing—clean, bright, gleaming, without taste, savour or nourishment.

We don’t sit down to meals like we used to. Everyone eats at different times and wants different meals. We just don’t get to eating together much now that they’re grown.
