Abstract
It is generally believed that spirituality is firmly opposed to worldliness and it is reaching out to God, heaven and eternal life. Man, when he feels lonely, inadequate and incomplete, in the shock of his loneliness or isolation craves union with God. The search for spirituality was long and unending. It was a search into the spirit, Holy Scriptures, sayings of seers and sages. It is widely accepted that each man seeks meaning of life and accept the presence of divine. Man may or may not be aware of his spirit but whenever he has to face the dilemma of right or wrong, he gets an answer. The paper analyses early Indian English novels by women to explore their spirituality and struggle for survival.
