Do not censor the flights of women, let them glide and blow out the cologne. Women are the country's destiny, let them be an inordinate. Women are the power and spirit of the nation, don't exploit them. Embrace a woman with love, respect and edification!

Vikas Sharma emerges as one of the most important contemporary Indian English novelists offering the authenticities of the society during Covid 19 pandemic. His works present the situation and condition within the Indian socio-cultural environment using the form of fiction as a probe, he highlights the life of people and specifically women's lived experience in search of identity in the multifaceted social order. He displays the different facets of woman's life and shows what it is to be a woman, and the effort a woman has to make towards establishing her identity. The existing analysis of Vikas Sharma's novels is with a view to understand the novelist's concept of womanhood. It is in this concept that Vikas Sharma's deep and profound relationship with society is analysed.

My hypothesis is that Vikas Sharma's preliminary perception and recognition of the condition of women in the Indian society has generated a unique change in his novels. His novels present the mosaic of womanhood encompassing her as a wife, a friend, mother and a social being, which is achieved by integration of the individual self and the social self, with the specific realization of the situation of being a woman. Sharma's women are able to move out of the confinement in search of a better independent life.

Sharma archives a discrete exodus from the subjective world of women to imagine society as a whole where careers, meaning of life and their relation to something larger than the self, preoccupy the protagonists. Having explored the various aspects of woman's psyche an attempt is being made to understand the responsibility towards something outside the self and established meaningful relationship with society. Through these various relationships, protagonists struggle to survive, strengthen themselves and attain fulfilment.

Sharma's amalgamation of tradition and modernity in his writings marks the emergence of the self-defined New Women who has forged an independent existence and voiced previously unspoken conflicts and experiences. He has established himself as a unique writer in making literary articulation a responsible social function. By enhancing feminine consciousness his novels project the feelings and perceptions associated with woman's progress towards self-definition.

The novels of Vikas Sharma have been designated for the exposition of gender power and equity. The book includes 22 research papers exploring extensively all his novels.

The papers trace the growth of the writer and his preoccupation with the human predicament. It also flings a concise leaf at the bird's eye view and wide range of Indian English fiction, through its areas of growth which gives a view of positive prominent and frequent essence.

The paper included, also covers the subordinate position of women in society and also projects women with their problems which will persuade to a splendid awareness of what society expects a woman to be and whether women as individuals and as a group find fulfilment in animating up to this image.
