This paper focuses critically on the feminine consciousness in the novels of Manjukapur Manju Kapur’s sense to be a Feminist and the consciousness of her characters are analyzed in this paper. The themes of sexuality and man-woman relationship initially introduced in her stories are discussed which became the subject of full length in the novels. But they are found not merely as raw materials for her novels. Her versatile treatment of women's issues reveals her sensitive nature as a woman writer and this quality affirms her works as an outstanding contribution to Indian literature in English proving her to be a humanist.
