Description

English Translation: Madhu H. Kaza, Ari Sitaramayya

* * *

“Occasionally, a woman is recognized as intelligent but remember this: she is a hundred-fold more intelligent than she gets credit for. Recognition comes only after all attempts at suppression have failed. The woman is flattered even by that small recognition and tries to settle in the image created for her. Most of a woman’s strength and intelligence is spent in fighting with society and members of her family”

“The stories in this collection are about the web of myths woven around the bodies of women, and the relationships of women with other women, men and society in general.”

“The focus on the body, and in particular, on its “parts” in this collection highlights the way in which characters inherit distorted and fragmented ideas about their own bodies. The body is to be compliant and contained. To speak, sing, or laugh is often enough to threaten the patriarchal order… Indeed, throughout these stories what we see is women and girls who cannot continue to be contained. They begin to speak, think, shout and laugh without shame.”
