Adjustment is of utmost importance for an individual's leading a blissful life. Be it the Professional life or domestic life or the natural surroundings, one needs to and one must adjust. Adjustment is the key to one's happiness and this applies not only to human beings but also to animals. If we look around, we are adjusting to the climate, the weather conditions, the society, the people and so on irrespective of our liking or disliking. Women, in our society, are considered to be the most adjustable beings. They adjust with their parents in the way they bring them up; they adjust with their husbands and their new families after their marriage; they also adjust with their sons in their old age. Though conflicts are an important part of everyone's life, one can resolve them by adjusting to the demand of the situation. The present paper is an attempt to study the conflicts in the minds of the female protagonists of Shashi Deshp ande's three famous novels-That Long Silence, The Dark Holds No Terrors and Roots and Shadows. These protagonists achieve individuality and authentic self-identity without antagonizing the cultural and traditional ethos of the society, mainly through their adjustment capacity.
