Nandy writes: This folk theory of Sati was internalized by the widows, or for that matter, women in general.
Even when Sati was officially abolished, the alternative available to widows who chose to remain single was miserable. They believed that without authoritarian control of the husband, they would stray from the path of virtue, for they were naturally promiscuous. Pro-Sati literature repetitively reinforces the frivolity of women, their thoughtless submission to passion, irrationality, and lack of rectitude.
In other words, pro-Sati literature carefully constructed women as fickle and therefore in severe need of control. Women have been remarkably interpellated in this patriarchal discourse of innate female promiscuity. Drawing inspiration from Kate Millet, Kathleen Barry notes: Women have been led to believe for so long that they have an uncontrolled sexuality, which victimizes men and makes females innately promiscuous — a myth that we must believe at the same time that we believe all women are frigid.
These myths are steeped in male concepts of sexuality. Basic to male sexuality is an association between their sexual organs and powers…. Men still hold on to an irrational fear that women have some mysterious power to subdue their sexuality. This has led them to two simultaneous and contradictory presumptions about women. Not only do they believe out of fear that women are innately promiscuous, but to immobilize the promiscuity they describe the same women as innocent virgins, making the women something harmless in the mind of the male.
We are constantly traded between two sets of images: And neither apply, our mistake has been to accept and believe their definition of us thereby distrusting ourselves. However, Ghosh makes a remarkable departure in his own reinterpretation of the novel in the recent film version.
She refuses to conform to the norms a widow is forced to adhere to. Apparently, she is a dutiful widow: But deep within, she is subversive. The sexual vulnerability of the widow is recognized particularly in the scene where the white doctor assumes that Binodini has come for an abortion whereas she has actually cut her finger.
Patriarchal discourses on female sexuality are acerbically challenged every time Binodini makes sarcastic digs at Mahendra during moments of physical intimacy that unmask the hypocritical patriarch who abruptly refrains from intercourse, much to her sadistic amusement. One interesting instance is where Mahendra recoils with fear when Binodini reminds him of her husband dying of some splenetic disease.
Binodini sardonically reprimands him: Binodini is constantly pitted against women not just men conditioned to believe in their fickleness.
Ashalata is shocked to find her speaking English, and insipidly relates her widowhood to her being educated. Again, Binodini convinces Rajlakshmi into drinking tea, which a widow is forbidden to have.

She strongly protests when both Rajlakshmi and Annapurna insist on hiding the tea-set as Bihari suddenly arrives. A similar protest is heard when Ashalata asks her to don some jewels secretly.
Infuriated, Binodini asks: Would I be defiled if I touch them?
At one point in the film she tells Mahendra rather fervidly: She is consequently dubbed a witch by Rajlakshmi when she discovers her liaison with Mahendra. Binodini retaliates sarcastically: What is remarkable is that Binodini equates physical desire to craving for forbidden food, underlining the naturalness of the former.
Binodini completely upsets the moral paradigm in which Ashalata or Rajlakshmi were so far comfortably contained.
It is in this sense that she is different, a rebel in true sense of the term. Significantly enough, she does not even remarry when Bihari relents to accept her as wife. Perhaps she does not want to be rescued by a man; she leaves behind the narrow boundaries of the home to embrace the larger politics of the nation. Reversing the Gaze? With Binodini as protagonist, Rituparno Ghosh has been partially successful in reversing the sexual politics of classical cinema by transforming both the male characters Mahendra and Bihari into objects of a desiring gaze.
Notably, Binodini is provided with a pair of binoculars signifying that she is ostensibly invested with subjectivity and the power of controlling the gaze. We may note the following shots: The gaze of the spectator and that of the camera are fused in all these shots thereby transforming the male body as spectacle. However, Binodini too functions as an erotic spectacle particularly in the scene where Binodini demonstrates to Ashalata how to wear a blouse.
Here is an example of intra- diegatic gaze: Here the gaze of the spectator and that of Ashalata fuse, turning Binodini into an object of erotic desire.
