Anjana S, Sivani Sai A S, Rithwick B R, Shibani Chakraverty Aich.

Abstract
Modern society is highly efficient with developments in science and technology. But the social problems like atrocities against women still remain. Literature is a reflection of life. So, it is natural that the social evils gets reflected in the novels like Witness the Night where we come across a mass murder. The scene is terrifying with thirteen dead bodies and a fourteen year old girl called Durga with her hand tied to the cot. She seemed to be a victim of rape and violence. It is from these circumstances the story unfolds, presenting before us the atrocities underlying gender discrimination. In spite of this, the injustice of the police becomes evident as they accuse the girl as the murderer. The mystery behind the murder and rape is maintained till the end. As the mystery is unraveled the unholy alliances in the society come out. Durga and her sister are no doubt the victims to violence. Another burning issue discussed here is the dowry, female foeticide and infanticide. It is particularly the prevailing situation in Punjab where the sex ratio is 895 which is below the national average of 940. The concept of equality is not a new phenomenon. It was there in the scriptures and the Vedas but the picture of women is one of exploitations even now. Principles and concepts were there always but the atrocities continue. The solution to the problem is nothing but a return to the Gandhian way of life which is based on truth, justice and fearlessness. There is no doubt that we come across the gruesome picture prevailing in society here in the novel. This novel is a true representation of society. This paper brings a parallel between women in ancient and modern ages. This paper intends to reveal how the law lies dormant while the man stands helpless.

Key words: Gender discrimination, Violence, Foeticide, Dowry, Justice, Fearlessness
