DESCRIPTION

The contemporary Indian woman. She is Kali, Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. She is the victim and the tormentor.

She is fire. She is ice.

With changing times, more and more women are coming out their homes to enter challenging professions. These short stories attempt to present a slice of life from the experiences of various women.

Woman is Shakti incarnate. Yet, many women either drift through life unaware of their potential, or misuse their inner strength.

This book looks at our times through the eyes of women from all walks of life–doctors, lawyers, air-hostesses, actresses, police women, teachers, marketing executives and housewives.

Wending their way through life, the characters find themselves confronting issues such as dowry demands, illiteracy, domestic abuse, discrimination, communal harmony and professional ethics. And what then?

I, A Woman takes the reader on a journey into these women’s hearts. To participate in their joys and sorrows. To share in their hopes and despairs. To depict the good, the bad and the ugly.
