Their whole life iscontrolled by someone or the other.

Socialite Evenings

They live for their parents or for their husbands or for their children but not for themselves. They do not have a life of their own. They have no time to think of themselves since all the time they worry about the comforts of the men folk. Karuna is against such a kind of subordinate life led by her mother.

So it is natural that she revolts against the middle class life where a woman has no life of her own. She continues to work in ads. The first time father warns her. The second time he slaps her. Then the act of rebellion keeps the modeling going and she performs in more and more ads and the slapping stops as more ads appear and the father is helpless in controlling her disobedient and stubborn daughter.

When Karuna undergoes her college studies, she gets into contact with a socialite named Anjali. Since Anjali is the portal of the world to which she longs for, Karuna is not able to take away Anjali from her life.

Anjali becomes her role model. Karuna and Anjali have similar reasons in choosing a rich man as their life partners.

Socialite Evenings

Anjali, a half-Jain and half-Hindu, goes to the extent of changing her religion and marrying a rich Muslim, Abe, years older, only to realize her wishes like to be on her own, independent, see the world, meet people, buy lovely clothes and perfumes.

She feels her life would be different in the fashion world which can bring a life leading to wealth, freedom, status and mainly the fulfillment of her desires. She is in utter bewilderment and disappointment because she is made to live a subordinate life like her mother.

He brainwashes her and makes her feel inferior and worthless. Karuna becomes very submissive and tries to accustom herself to her husband, like not arguing with him when he is unhappy and doing things the way he wants. She feels passive and powerless and tries not to think about her needs.

She is merely a puppet in the hands of her dominating husband. Karuna, in spite of her feeling desperately suffocated, tries to adjust with the husband. She even advises Anjali to stick around Abe or remain single because she will not get a good partner at that age. But Anjali divorces her husband and immediately starts her partner-hunting expedition. Kumar Bhandari is ready to take Anjali as his third wife.

In the Bombay society, women work, marry, divorce and remain single. It takes time for Karuna to come into that society. This involvement brings her closer to Krish, a married man and a friend of her husband.

Her husband wants to divorce suspecting her paternity. She moves out and makes a life of herself. Here she differs from her mother. Karuna is able to come out of her marriage bond boldly unlike her mother. Her husband cheats her by not giving the alimony after the divorce. Karuna is also not interested in the alimony from her husband. Even during the period when she had been divorced by her husband and had to move from place to place in search of a job, her attitude of being herself does not quite leave her.

Her sole concern during this stage too is how she can shake off her middle- class background. Even in this state she tries to have an identity for herself in the society. So she really looks forward to acting. She is even invited to the Outlooks anniversary party which is considered more honourable. She graduates from writing to making ad films and is asked to script a major TV serial sponsored by a soft drink company. Slowly she is raised to the pinnacle of fame.

Having realized that living alone also can give happiness, Karuna refuses the ex-husband, even though he grovels at her feet to come back to him. She refuses the proposal of Girish.

Slowly she is raised to the pinnacle of fame. Having realized that living alone also can give happiness, Karuna refuses the ex-husband, even though he grovels at her feet to come back to him. She refuses the proposal of Girish.

Moreover, the earlier marriage and the bitterness of it have taught her not to have such horrible experiences any more in her life. She is not interested in having children also. She has the responsibility to look after her parents.

She is confident enough to face the world alone without the support of anyone.Good "trash" needs a fast pace, witty dialogue, outlandish characters, acerbic asides, and attention to aesthetic details why I knew Crazy Rich Asians would be a hit before it exploded on the American market. Her husband cheats her by not giving the alimony after the divorce. So one can only imagine my disappointment when my experience turned out to be quite anti-climatic.

Socialite Evenings, New Delhi: Penguin. Karuna is against such a kind of subordinate life led by her mother.

She continues to work in ads.
