Abstract
This research paper is a study of two novels by two different woman writers belonging to two different nations, cultures, life styles, traditions, though they throw light on the same topic how women live under the burden of conservatism of tradition, empowered not by a male but by themselves to create a society where they are valued for who they are. The first novel is Dark Holds No Terrors (1990) by Shashi Deshpande, an Indian writer, and the second novel is Jasmine (1989) by Bharati Mukherjee, an Indo-Canadian Diasporic writer. The aim of this research paper is to illustrate how both writers deal with the sensibility of women migrating from their place which is indeed their evacuation from their feelings, existence, space, recognition, etc.
