Abstract: Anita Desai is a Sahitya Akademi Awardee(1978) novelist. She has done her mastery over women issues and we can find this in almost all her works. Anita Desai is a standout amongst other known contemporary women writers of Indian fiction in English.Anita Desai has been writing some of the best English language fiction in India for almost four decades. She’s been shortlisted for the Man Booker prize thrice. Family relationships and their evolution have been the main themes of Desai’s fictions.This paper deals with Feminism and loss of hope in life.The novel "Cry, the Peacock", is mainly concerned with the theme of disharmony between husband and wife relationship. Desai looks in to the reasons for marital discord and illustrates how such discord affects the family. Sometimes, the inability of an individual to be responsive to the behaviour patterns of her partner leads to strain and tension in the relationship, while sometimes it is on account of varied levels of sensitivity that strained relationships occur. In this novel, Maya and Gautama have strained relationships because of their incompatible temperament. Maya is dreamy, sensitive and emotional, while Gautama  is in the role of Maya, Anita Desai has showed the feminine mind of both a girl and a woman. The issue of female, a hot subject in feminism, is addressed by Anita Desai with sensitiveness. By Maya's role, Anita Desai carries a new aspect of feminist publishing. Maya stands separate from every female character in the novel.realistic, insensitive and rational. The female protagonist  Maya is a very emotional person because of her father's uncoditional love ,affection and care towards her.Maya's nuturing like this by her Father made her the villain of her own life.And Maya's immature behaviour leads her to a life which she never desired of.I have delt with Maya's character in this article".
