Abstract: The colonial Modernity is attached with the socio economic development of India and the emergence of the new woman is a concomitant phenomenon. The stresses and strains the woman faces the world over in the contemporary socio-economic setting of the world wherein she approximates the concerns of gender bias in the relational cobwebs of modernity is a matter of concern for the writers who seek to portray the changing contours of the Indian Culture. The economic independence, social emancipation resulting into acquiring an identity at par with men and the commitment to a value system based on egalitarian social setting in the face of socio- economic and political development in the present times have impinged upon the requirement of a social order suffused with the concerns of a woman in moral, emotional and spiritual fields whereby the more fundamental problems for the women under the category „aberrations‟ remain at the periphery of their personality none of them touching the core of her being. At the conceptual level, the location of the new woman is seen as distinct from the modern or the emancipated woman and it is in her own psychological and emotional framework that she emerges a new woman without herself being aware of the fact and competently paces ahead as her own champion to help her realize her inner being spiritually and emotionally. The present study seeks to discover how gender is constructed in the contemporary trends of potent development of the country, opened up economically, socially and politically in the world over setting, meeting the challenges of globalization, privatization and liberalization as depicted in the select works of Kamala Markandaya whose ouvre began at the time when India had just attained in dependence and the world was confronting a piquant situation in the face of resetting the world order after the two world wars. The study will focus on the relational matrix of gender in the contemporary times of industrialization and urbanization. The study will also aim to explore multiple nuances of modernism and liberalism contesting the unquestionable, hitherto, the hegemonic patriarchal dominance.
Keywords: Emancipation, Egalitarianism, Emancipation, Globalization, Liberalization, Privatization, Modernism etc.
