Title Rape as an Element of Power Dominance in Nampally Road by Meena Alexander and Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Creator S, Maharajalakshmi
Meeran, Dr.P.Abukaniba
Subject Rape, Colonialism, Dominance.
Description In the subaltern countries such as India and Africa, the form of government adapted or infused was that of the Colonial or European form of governance. For instance, during the colonial invasions in India and Africa the governance was changed or forced from the feudal system to the constitutional form of government. While the colonial form of governance has many positive aspects, the inhumane practice of rape was prominent to exhibit political dominance. In order to prove this practice of inhumane act two novels have been chosen for this research. One is Nampally Road by Meena Alexander that talks about the societal imbalance caused during the period of “Emergency act” and the other is Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi that deals with a period of three centuries starting from the “Slave Fugitive act” to post independence, where the plots depict the prominence of rape to exhibit power and control the natives.
