This paper explains that Amulya Malladi's "Serving Crazy with Curry" is about the lives of four women and their perceptions of the strengths and weaknesses they exhibit based on their own and others' ideas of their gender roles. The author points out that each woman's life represents a myth of who they are and how others see them. The paper relates that the work of the individual characters in the novel is to come to terms with the truth and their own hidden feelings and to reconcile this truth with how they perceive other people view them and their cultural and institutional gender identities, which will lead to their healing.
From the Paper:"The work details the life of a family in cultural transition as they navigate through difficult times and then individually and collectively run head long into gender role identity. The novel describes the lives of three generations of Indian women through the eyes of four emotionally challenged women and two emotionally challenged men. The family endures the tragedies that befall it through attempts at expressions of love that often end in misunderstandings but eventually through almost forced togetherness through tragedy each one comes to terms with the other to form a tight bond of love and friendship, despite continued and even accepted gender expectations."
