Changing Urban Realities In India In Chetan Bhagat's One Night @ The Call Center And 2 States

1629 words - 7 pages

In Bhagat's fiction the attitude of youths towards love, marriage, and sex is not at all emotional; on the contrary it is quite casual. Love, as it is an instinctual feeling, the young generation feels the vibrations of it every now and then but the expression of it and the carrying of their love relationships have definitely changed. As we see in his fictions, there are love proposals and rejections of them but everything is taken quite healthily or say in a matter- of- fact way. Vroom in the call centre loved Esha, and proposed her three to four times, and she kept rejecting him all these times. Even though it is so, they work together and maintain quite a healthy friendship. Shyam and Priyanka had been in relation ever since their college time. When they thought that they should break up, they formally come together and put a break to their relationship. Ultimately after all said and done they come together, and decide to marry but the things that happen in between show us the changed relation equations of our time. Shyam as he says wanted to 'move on', a new terminology in the subject 'Love', develops a casual love relationship with another girl at the call center. A marriage proposal of an NRI working in Microsoft, entertains Priyanka's fancy for the time being but when she learns about the baldness of the guy, her affection turns once again towards Shyam. Krish and Ananya in 2 States fall in love with each other in a strange way. At IIM Ahmadabad, they started studying together in Ananya's room. Krish could not concentrate on his studies, as every time his attention would be caught by Ananya's looks. Out rightly he told her so and the relationship got started quite surprisingly. Particularly in this work, Love marriage and sex in case of Krish and Ananya come together in a more mature way. They love and want to marry each other because they share a mutual understanding, one of the major components in marriage. They look at sex as a but- obvious thing in love. That is why they indulge in sex every now and then. Thus both the fictions depict an urban reality that the young generation is more in favour of love marriages than in arranged ones. The attitude of this generation towards sex is not laden with guilt. They look at sex as a way of expressing their love for their partner. While depicting this acceptable reality Bhagat also shows us nonsense sometimes committed by fickle-minded youth. People are so much fancied by the word love, that sometimes love relations get started even between the people calling and receiving wrong numbers. With growing urbanization and globalization a number of opportunities have opened up all around. Men and Women are no more seen through the old spectacle which marked men as superior and women as inferior. In this global atmosphere, so far belittled women are given their due place and respect. With their own intellect and abilities they are seen to be working shoulder to shoulder with men. Thus this 21st...
