Abstract
The emotional world of women is indeed wide and encompassing. With the advent of formal education, this emotional world of women got an expression and flourished as literary words on paper. Women writers have made marks for themselves in the literary scenario in India. Dnyanpeeth winning authors like Mahasweta Devi, Ashapurna Devi, Pratibha Ray, Amruta Pritam, Mahadevi Varma, and others have proved their undisputed contribution and importance in the field of literature. Crossing the boundaries of traditional forms like Drama, Poetry, and Novel, they explored the free genre of literary prose. They have proved their mettle at composing Literary Prose works. These writers penned down various phases of the Woman’s life across various cross sections of the society. In the Marathi literary scenario too, women writers have done a commendable job. In the present work attempt has been made to put forth the features of some selected Marathi women writers involved in Literary Prose literature. Their writings reflect their literary competence and perception, awareness, understanding of the woman’s life and the corresponding social realities. The various aspects of a woman’s life, their experiences, perceptions of life, emotional and intellectual spheres, their relationships with families and the society, and various such delicate topics were handled by them with great efficiency. This research paper has been written with special reference to the literary prose works of Kusumawati Deshpande, Iravati Karve and Indira Sant. These Literary Prose works have been meaningfully classified under the categories like memoirs, travelogues, biographies, literary essays, about nature, etc. An important contribution of literary prose is the bringing out the notion of ‘I’. And going a step ahead, they ruled out the belief that ‘I’ only meant the expression of personal likes and dislikes, by showing, how it can be taken to a higher, wider level… The emotional world of women is undeniably very deep and profound; these Literary Prose Works show how it expands from their own homes to reach various countries and their cultures. In a nutshell, we could say that these Marathi women writers have handled this form to give it a new outlook. They have freed it from its fixities and rigid technicalities. The research paper concludes by pointing out the uniqueness of these Women Writers in terms of perception, meaning and their ways of expressing themselves.

Abstract
Long considered a "strategic backwater" from the U.S. perspective, South Asia has emerged in the 21st century as increasingly vital to core U.S. foreign policy interests. During the Cold War era, the U.S. regarded South Asia as an area of marginal strategic importance barring to check the communist expansion in the region. However, the recent shifts in global power relationships have made South Asia an important region not to ignore. The situation after September 11 and the Indo-U.S. strategic cooperation have changed the relationship pattern between the U.S. and South Asia. Present involvement of the U.S. in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Indo-Pak rivalry, concerns about the proliferation of nuclear weapons, combating terrorism, and growing presence of Chinese influence in the region has significantly increased the strategic importance of South Asia in the U.S. policy making circles. It is in this back drop the paper attempts to examine the U.S. interests and thereby it policies in the region from Cold War era to the recent U.S. Rebalancing Strategy. While doing so, a descriptive-historical method has been used to study and present the facts with optimum level of objectivity.
