Defiant Dreams: Tales of Everyday Divas

Hello friends, sharing with you all the birth of a very special child of me and Rhiti Bose, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Incredible Women of India, which we have named ‘Defiant Dreams: Tales of Everyday Divas‘. The book, published by Readomania in collaboration with Incredible Women of India, is a collaborative dream of Rhiti and mine which originated from a nationwide short story contest in India, ‘STREE’, which focused on articulating the extraordinary journeys of everyday women.

Sharing a few lines from the blurb of the book:

Defiant Dreams: Tales of Everyday Divas is a collection of twenty-four stories handpicked through a nationwide contest.  It is a collage of love and patience, courage and determination. Between the covers is a chronicle of love that refuse to be crushed by life’s injustices. The tales are portrayals of everyday women 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 the high rises of Delhi to the household courtyards down south, across urban landscapes and rural settings, these incredible women are here to inspire.”
