    I am yet to read any of the above books, adding them to my TBR. The only translated works I have read are Raseedi Ticket ( Amrita Pritam ) and Ismat Chughtai’s “Lihaaf” and “A Life in Words”

    While reading about “Swarnalata”, I recalled the short stories by Rabindranath Tagore that I recently watched on Netflix. The stories have shown that side of the society when women started to have a say I the society. earlier, it was sad to read about women sufferings. Inspire of addressing them as Maa, they had to face many hardships.

    Every book and the sneak peek at the harsh reality of women’s life is spine chilling. I haven’t read any. Honestly, I do not think I can collect the courage to read any sooner or later. I am going to recommend the list to my elder sis; she loves to read feminist-fiction.

    I haven’t read any of these books you have recommended. The one about the hangwoman sounds interesting. Definitely women dont have it easy when they choose unconventional careers. It need not be anything glamours. And this is an example of job dominated by men.

    Omg, Ritu! What an exquisite selection of books. I would love to read all of them. Women have always felt the wrath of society and books like these inspire the present generation by telling them the tale of these powerful women. I am glad these books are translated from regional languages to english, making it available for the wider audience. Thanks for sharing these books with us.

    I’ve been looking for something like this for a while. Great that you curated this. Just another thought Ritu. What suggestions do you have for memoirs/self-help but fiction.
