Women make significant decisions during desperate situations and even choose to do odd
jobs to care for their families. Particularly Indian women put an end to their true identity to
care for their children. India is known for its various language and cultural practices.
Different languages are spoken across the country, their culture differs from state to state,
and their customs play a vital role concerning religion. They worship different Gods, yet
they remain united, so it is called the country of 'Unity in Diversity. Despite the differences,
all Indian women have specific common featured in them. Chastity is blended in the blood
of every Indian woman. They tend to protect it throughout their lifetime. However,
unfortunately, some women are pushed to the position where they have to sell their chastity
to provide for the family's sake. Even though the husband or the father is regarded as the
primary breadwinner, today, in so many Indian families, women take up the family
responsibility. They even choose to take up odd jobs such as surrogates and sex workers.
This paper deals with the bottled-up emotions of one such woman and the consequences of
the choice she made to take care of her family. The paper also argues the interconnection
between the feminist concepts that are taken up for analysis.
