Women now

07 Jul 15

A fiery book has been released by an author, Saikat Majumdar who teaches in USA and who had once written for ‘Akash Patra’ our e-zine.
The book of fiction is about a ten year old with a mother who acts in Theatre in Bengal.
I remember years back when I was an undergrad and there was a talented lady in the family who was an excellent actor. While being celebrated outside the family, within it, invectives and insults were thrown at her. But she stuck to her acting at great personal cost.
I wonder what turned the tide, when have women been given the freedom to follow her dreams? Or is it cosmetic freedom still? Anyone out there who can help me understand?

    Would you mind giving the name of the book by Saikat Majumdar? Sounds like an interesting book and I’d love to read it.

      It’s called ‘Firebird’ I think. It’s a Hachette India book.

      Dear Avalokita,
      We were all the pioneers.
      We struggled in our different spheres and set the bench mark.
      So don’t let us down.
