Marriage or Live Together: The Issue O. P. Arora’s 'The River Flows Eternally'
The River Flows Eternally is a book of short stories by Dr O. P. Arora, which contains seventeen short stories, none too long. This is his sixth book of fiction; all his books of this genre taken together, in English and Hindi. In these stories Arora has plunged into the most debated and controversial area of man-woman relationship in the present context; in a changed scenario when Western culture has been enormously influencing Indian society. The moot point is to find out the best way of conjugal relationship; marriage or live-together. The book has some more stories too which point out the pitfalls of Indian society, its hollowness and weakness. They contain writer’s point of view and remedial suggestions too in each such situation.
Keywords: Marriage, sex, relationship, goon, honesty.
