Bapsi Sidhwa is a post-modern diasporic feminist writer of Pakistan who lives in the USA. Her pen exposes her rightful experience and concern with the Indian panorama of social dichotomy and women oppression. In her novels, every woman character appears to possess her new identity losing herself in the liberty of the patriarchal whirlpool. If it is Zaitoon or Carol in “The Pakistani Bride”, it is Shanta, the Ayah in the “Ice-Candy Man”.
