Abstract
This research article focuses on an in-depth textual analysis of Jhabvala’s novels and helps to bring out the use of social reality as an integral part of a narrative technique. Jhabvala is a silent listener of different aspects and shades of multi-cultural Indian reality. In her Ivory Tower, she shows her intention towards India along with her experience of India. Her early writings are fascinating but later she is bored with India’s poverty and corruption and the social issues of India in her age and she describes tradition and modern, the East and the West. Her thought is comic but gradually her focus on Indian society and hypocrisy takes her to the realm of irony, later full of bitter. In her narration, she uses the perfectly suitable Indian images and vocabulary. Themes and techniques of her novels show the journey of Jhabvala.
