This research will explore the effects of partition of Indian subcontinent on women's life. The brawling of colonialism and anti-colonialism is said to be devised on the body of women, especially middle-class women. Memories of partition are too distressing to be told. A historian writes only about events, but a creative writer writes all the perspectives of all events and marks it approachable and comprehensible to common man. Bapsi Sidhwa's narrative of partition speaks about silence, horror and loss of men and women. Ice Candy Man can be rightly defined as a post colonial bildungsroman, as it deals with growth and education of its female protagonist, Lenny. The research paper will focuses on Ice Candy Man from different aspects of partition and its effects on women.
