Book Description
A reporter for the Washington Post, Elisabeth Bumiller came to India with her husband, correspondent for The New York Times, and over three-and-a-half years, traveled to all parts of the country, examining the paradoxes, problems, triumphs and realities of the lives of India’s women: villagers, movie-stars, intellectuals, policewomen. ‘A woman’s role in Indian society,’ the author writes, ‘is full of contradictions. While enormous numbers of them are illiterate, many hold important positions in politics and the arts. While most suffer discrimination and poverty, others are transforming India into a modern nation.’ Bumiller brings out these paradoxes in a clean, insightful style that makes the vast complexities of the lives of India’s four hundred million women accessible and compelling.
