Abstract or Introduction
The first part of the paper deals with the hierarchies in Indian society, especially problems in the family network, in the cast system and in the gender roles.
The second part applies this information to Roy's novel. Ammu's and Chacko's relationships to spouses and lovers, which show many parallels, are compared.
