Sangeeta Gupta* Dr. Parul Tyagi**

 
ABSTRACT
The present article is an attempt to trace the multiple themes projecting the human relationships in the poems of Gauri Deshpande. She throws light upon the different relationships mainly focusing on man-woman relationship. She finds herself tossed to the destiny of woman as a protector of every relationship and her poems convey a deep sense of pain and despair caused by frustration in love which is undoubtedly the base of every relationship. Her thematic canvas and subject matter includes hope, search for identity, nostalgia, death, despair, violence, historic concern, love, and solitude. She excels in her poetic creativity and the fabric of sensibility that she articulates in the portrayal of multiple relationships with their significance. She writes on the physical aspects of man-woman relationship with a sense of frankness and freedom of expression, capturing vividly the manifold dimension of gender relationship.
