This reflects the strong traditional concept of patriarchy in Indian, which girls should focus on domestic matters.

Amitav Ghosh it describes on the social ethos and presenting vital truths of life. It is a complex plot, since the narrator, travels into the past and future simultaneously to describe events which highlight particular aspects of character.
