Anita Desai occupies a unique position among all the woman Indian novelists of Indo Anglian Literature. Her novel “In Custody” is a clear presentation of human lives as it exists in their own exclusive circumstances, of the hypocrisy and pretension lying within the human spirit, of the difference between the town and the city life, of human helplessness and oppression on the road to ones aspirations. Her attempt to portray individuals, unique in taste and behavior, conveying a secret sense of life, draws a distinct line of demarcation from others.
