The woman by norm is relegated to the private domain and is allocated the affective role, while the man has full access to the public domain for he plays the role of the bread-winner. Devdutt Pattanaik, in his book, ‘The Pregnant King’, strives to show how gender plays an important part in defining roles and relationships, while at the same time also accounting for the interesting change in gender roles of men and women, which appears extremely contemporary and unthinkable at the time and context in which the story is set.

These ideas question the societal norms that privilege the men and not the women, the norms that prevent both men and women from adopting occupations and indulging in activities that majorly interests them.

Conflict is a prevalent idea in both novels, but is depicted differently in each.In “A Doll’s House”, the character conflict is primarily that of principle. Helmer believes that “an atmosphere of lies infects and poisons the whole life of a home”.
