Abstract: Contemporary Indian English fiction has occupied the dynamic place in modern times. Indian English fiction blossomed rapidly due to the emergence of women writers. These women writers tried to express the abhorrent facets of human life. The twenty first century women writers try to awaken the readers about the existing realities of contemporary social values. Sudha Murty is one such proficient writer, who tries to instill many social values of life through her writings. Mahashweta is one such noteworthy novel by Mrs. Murty. It is an inspiring tale about a courageous woman, Anupama, who travels in the world of marriage which is full of illusions, betrayals and the social stigma. This paper analyses the hidden veracities behind Anupama’s fairy-tale marriage, and her hardships in facing the society because of leukoderma. Murty explored the outrageous effects of ostracism – the existing social exploitation- in this novel so diligently through her protagonist Anupama and her daring revolt in overcoming the atrocities of mankind in order to survive in this world as a mere human being.
