Abstract: This article is an in-depth exposé of the first international legal dispute handled in 1948 by the International Court of Justice, between Great Britain and Albania. The author attempts to supply the reader with ample insight about the circumstances in which the maritime conflict between Albania and Great Britain took place, the geographic location, the relevance of the historic and geostrategic contexts and the other parties involved in it. The inquiry provides comprehensive referential evidence from British and Albanian sources alike, so as to avoid a possible slide into subjective assessment. The body of the article is written to stay as truthful as possible to the sequence of events which ultimately concluded with ICJ’s decision in favor of Great Britain. The author maintains that, for a variety of reasons listed at the end of the article – political, historic, post-conflict and otherwise – the verdict resulted unfair to the small country of Albania, and brought about substantial economic hardship as a result of a significant quantity of Albanian Government treasury gold confiscated by the British form the German at the end of the Second World War.

Abstract: Shashi Deshpande is a realistic writer who addresses feministic issues in her novels but she does not want to be branded as a hardcore feminist. The Dark Holds No Terrors is her first major novel before she got recognition with That Long Silence for which she received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1990. The novelist focuses on issues like individual human rights, marital rape, sexual discrimination etc in a rational manner. The female protagonist Sarita in this novel reflects the customary traditional values that an Indian woman really lives by in the society. In due course of her story, she describes her feelings of anguish, frustration, despair as well as complacent, hope and ecstasy in various stages of life. With time she has become more mature in her views. She has craved for a humane treatment of the female sex. Her narration of her childhood in comparison with her brother Dhruva shows how there exists adiscrimination in treatment of a girl child and a boy in our families. She recalls her displeasure at the treatment of her estranged husband but she also talks about her sexual gratification that she gets from him. In this way, Shashi Deshpande always possesses a balanced view of the man-woman relationship.
