The protagonists of the two novellas of Dalip Kaur Tiwana Harjit of Twilight and Kiranjit of The Mark of the Nose-Ring, even though operating in separate individual contexts with their own personal dilemmas, are not very different from each other.

Tiwana, in her inimitable style, brings to fore the private and intensely intellectual side of her protagonists, presenting their simmering discontent with the social mores handed out to them as woman through symbols and internal monologues. The contemporary but quasi-modern and quasi-traditional milieu of the stories builds up a tension that sustains the reader’s interest.
