Abstract:

Walk in the shoes of some of India's foremost women writers and thinkers, and go on a journey into their intimate lives, to places you haven't been. From the film sets of Bollywood to a closeted marital home in a Tamil Nadu village; from the slick boardroom of an online dating app to a makeshift bamboo house in the post-cylone Sunderbans; from the rigours of a beauty parlour, where skin bleaching is the norm, to a home for abandoned girls in Karnataka - walk with them. Walk with them as they report from Mumbai's streets alone at night, as they grapple with domestic violence, as they search for love through marriage brokers, as they learn to speak their minds, as they lay claim to their bodies, as they choose to be partnered or not, to become mothers or not, to make art, to make love, to make meaning of their lives. Reaching across different strata of society, religion and language, this anthology creates a kaleidoscope of distinct and varied real-life stories.
