A pricey book which talks about gender descrimination against women with statistical data.
27 June 2018
Not all the books are written for entertainment purpose. Some has substance in it in the form of statistical information.
Author Deepa Narayan has decided pen down her research work about the conditions and circumstances a large number of women are facing, especially in India.
The book has to be read as a study paper and one should not consider it against India or male in general. In fact, the author herself recognizes the contribution of her male family members and other friends. Well, we may or may not agree with many things of the book but we must understand that it is a result of research work. one can argue anything for or against the book, but actually one cannot deny the fact that women in general has often experienced gender based discrimination.
Of course, there are exceptions in both the genders, but in general it is not an easy world for women.
Actually, women were considered as the equal and there is a well-respected word “better-half” for the spouse. So, the culture was diluted in the medieval times. No matter what is the root cause of the same, we can update it and make a healthy society only if we care to do so.
The book is not a light read and it brings some of the important topics, we often avoid to answer, but are important ones. So this book is for those who can read it with positive attitude, and try to put in his/her efforts to make the world a better place
The book could have been written in interesting manner or by weaving the stuff in stories, and the price could have been less.
