Abstract

Throwing down the gauntlet to the establishment has been a covert propensity of the people who are crushed and exploited by the establishment. The people of marginalized section always tend to question the status quo which has kept them deprived of what is their rightful due since time immemorial. In other words, questioning the status quo and the establishment has been a very latent desire of the people from periphery of the society ever since the society was created. People living on the margin of the society are not allowed to tamper with the laws laid down by the people occupying the centre. If they dare to defy the norms and customs of puritanically patriarchal and hierarchal society, they must pay the price with their lives. Ammu and Velutha are such characters in The God of Small Things whose intrepid defiance results into their harrowing death. This is what this paper proposes to study.

Key Words

gauntlet, propensity, marginalized, status quo, defy, tamper, intrepid
