That was a problem. Why was she out there? It's not okay to say women cannot do something. And, if you do something, you are going to be punished. Those are some of the taboos or boundaries I want my women to break. Literature goes side by side with what is happening in real life. Is your activism integral to your role as a writer?
I cannot have an agenda upfront. We can make the reader sympathetic, make the reader think in slightly different ways. Also, for my male readers, it will create empathy for my female readers. I hope it will give them some inspiration and strength. How difficult was it to delve into the different mindscapes of three women from three generations?
I really wanted to show how each generation is very different and yet how each generation affects the next one. Ultimately, she is more like her mother than she'd like to think. So, the complexities of heritage was something I wanted to point to. But it was a challenge to create each woman and make her very different, yet show the complexities of heritage, show the connections and to show that although they have complicated relationships, there is love and care at the end and that is what heals them at the end and brings them together and hopefully, in a way, that surprises the readers.
Do you have to conceive your narrative arc in a particular way so that all this could fall into place — women making different choices, embarking on different journeys, searching for something or the other, with some of them also being buffeted by the impossibility of love and loss. They will lose something. She becomes a female entrepreneur and she has gained many other things. And, in some ways, all these three women push forward and change.
They are so well-etched out, some of them travel with you long after you have read about them. How do you work on characters? In Before We Visit The Goddess, while the other two women grandmother and mother would have been relatively easier to create, Tara comes from another generation and thinks and acts differently. How do you work on creating characters that are removed from your own experience? I did a lot of research. I spoke to a lot of younger generation people and I observed a lot of younger generation people.
Even among the younger generation, she is unusual because of the pain of the divorce. She has cut herself off from her family and from her culture.
She has decided that the old rules didn't work for my mother and so I cannot follow those old rules. She is still in a bad place. So, Tara thinks she is not going to do that. She thinks she has to find her own way. She gets into lot of trouble, but ultimately things work. But she had to go through a lot of self-questioning self-doubt.
She has to discover it for herself. It won't help us. We have to experience at least some of it ourselves. How do you work on them? I worked a lot on the minor characters in Before We Visit the Goddess because the minor characters are very important. In some ways, they are transformational devices for the women. And that help comes from many different places.
That is what I wanted to really point to. Also, I wanted some positive male characters. I was fond of these characters as I was writing them. Now, my literary agenda, as it were, is to write women protagonists because I want to tell the stories of women. I want to put women in the centre of my book because for so many centuries that has not been there. But I also wanted to show a very positive kind of relationship with these male characters and their importance in the lives of these women. When people talk about issues and problems, they see them like statistics or events that happened on a particular day.
And I really commend them for doing that. There are writers in America who are also doing that. A lot of immigrant writers are addressing problems that minority communities are facing.
More from The Byword
Some of my writings also focus on that. For example, Mistress of Spices focuses on the problems of the immigrant community. So, literature transforms those problems into something alive so that when a sensitive reader reads this, they really feel what is going on and then they go back to live their lives and when they come across those issues, they understand much more. Once you feel that compassion, once you feel that empathy, we ourselves as readers are changed. We are transformed. I was reading an article which said that people who read fiction regularly are more empathetic and compassionate.
That has always been my belief. They also said that people who read fiction live longer. I try to see the complexity in their life.
