Defiant Dreams: Tales of Everyday Divas is a collection of twenty-four stories handpicked through a nationwide contest. More than a book, it is a collage of love and patience, courage and determination. Between the pages is a chronicle of dreams that refuse to be crushed by the heel of Life's injustices. The tales are portraits of ordinary women-mothers, daughters, brides-to-be and wives --- rising to extraordinary challenges; women who transformed themselves into mistresses of their own destinies. From the lanes of Banaras to the hills of Assam, from urban landscapes to rural settings, these incredible women are here to inspire. The authors include Radhika Maira Tabrez, Kirthi Jayakumar, Debosmita Nandy, Paulami DuttaGupta, Santosh Bakaya, Sanghamitra Bose, Esha Chakraborty, Sutapa Basu, Vasudha Gulati, Deepti Menon, Arpita Banerjee, Bhuvaneshwari Shankar, Ramaa Sonti, Anirban Nanda, Aashisha Chakraborty, Geeta Negi, Tansushree Ghish Dhall, Mahesh Sowani, Moinak Dutta, Sridevi Datta, Namrata Chauhan, Avanti Sopory, Paromita Mukherjee Ojha, Sreesha D

A MUST READ!!
The editing done by Rhiti and Lopa on the stories is commendable. The crispness in which the stories are presented give an anticipatory waft of fragrance of rich yet simple language in which they reach the readers and leave them asking for more.
Hats off to them both for bringing such a beautiful anthology together and a great applause for all the writers to bring to us a gift of lovely narration. Defiant Dreams is an apt title for such unconventional stories of conventional Indian women. Go for it."
1. A common theme (check. i.e. about everyday women)
2. Fantastic cover (check)
3. Stunning stories (check; yeah, all of them)
4. Neat editing (check)
5. An amalgamation of established and struggling writers to bring out the best from them. (check)
If you don't believe me then, read the story Memories of March by Sutapa Basu, The Drug Addict by Santosh Bakaya or A Safe Passage by Sanghamitra Bose. They are jewels. Don't think, buy it.
