 Starry nights, Shobha DeShobha De, a significant name in the modern Indian literature always remains unique in selecting her subjects in the novels. Shifted from depicting the common human condition, she rather deals with the aristocratic class or the titled class. She mercilessly points out the sores and wounds of the modern society. Often labeled as feminist by the critics, the writings of Shobha De reflect the conflicts and the dilemmas the women in India had to undergo. The erotic content of her novels has been somewhat controversial, with some reviewers being sneering of her work while others suggest that she is countering the taboos held by many women writers. Presently she is the house name of the aristocratic intellectuals.
