An Ignorant Protagonist in Perumal Murugan’s Pyre Novel
India is famed for its diverse cultures, dialects, religions, traditions, and pride in the country’s integrity, but the mysterious fact is that it is also notorious for casteism. In the name of caste, casteism treats unequal societal behaviour. It’s a harsh system that divides people in general. Women are the primary victims of inter-caste marriages in this country. This article examines how Saroja, the protagonist, is ignorant of the casteist system that exists in many of the places where honour killings have occurred.
