Nayantara Sahgal’s women characters evolve along with the creator’s understanding of women. Her writing is clearly a part of Indian literature and emerges from her rootedness in middle class Indian society. She uses simple language to describe simple life especially of the Indian women in her novels. Storm in Chandigarh (1988) is intricately woven around the themes of violence, disorder, chaos and anarchy, not only at the political level but also at the personal level. Sahgal probes into the causes of such ‘stormy situations’ and vouches for a ‘New Higher Morality’, a ‘New Humanism’ based on comradeship.
