about the book - it's awesoem.. I had read it, thus sent this to my frnd.
The domestic world with all its vagaries and varieties powerfully, poignantly presented by a towering author of the 20th century.
Bengal was truly a cornerstone for Women's Reformation and Renaissance, in the 18th and 19th centuries, struggling as it still was with its own internals pulls of caste and patriarchy. Join the eight-year old protagonist, Satya the cornerstone of justice and probity, as she attempts to light the path ahead across an entire generation.
Pronams and deep respect to the author, Ashapurna Debi. Kudos to the translator Indira Chowdhury for such a brilliant effort. Please translate Subarnalata as well.
