The purpose of the paper is to study Feminist Consciousness And Traditionalism in the novel Dollar Bahu by Sudha Murthy, taking in account the complexity of life, different histories, culture and different structure of values, the women's question, greed for money and working abroad as status symbol in Indian society. The article mirrors that Indian mentality which is fascinated by Dollar …the foreign currency which is valued more than sentiments, morals and relationship. Murty is considered to be one of the most realistic authors, for she is able to bring the true picture of psyche of the women changing with the times. Her concern for the women who are caught in the dilemma of liberty and individuality or stability and protection is understandable. The paper displays the way in which the Urban middle class women struggle for self identity yet rooted deep into values of being a women who binds together the family in Sudha Murty's Dollar Bahu . The novel is women centered and woman's emotions and attitudes are delineated quite meticulously. We see a very clear touch of Traditionalism in this novel in the way a woman rate down another women low blinded by glow of Dollar. The study of the research highlights the dominance of the mighty Dollar in every pursuit of life. Today's new women are ready to accomplishing their aspirations. An Indian woman unlike a man, is stronger morally and emotionally. The novel deciphers the fact that it is the power of ‘SHE' that can make or break a family.
