‘Maidens of Fate – 12 Extraordinary Tales of Women from India’ – a book depicting the unique position of women in the country inspired by real life stories

 The solo debut novel of author Saurav Ranjan Dattadepicts the unique position of women in India. On one hand, we worship them as representatives of the Primordial Mother Goddess, while on the other hand, they are subjected to numerous atrocities. Our mind resonates with the belief that the feminine superpower will look after all her children in the form of a mortal mother, whose love for her children is considered to be the greatest in this world. However, at the same time, a girl child is not desirable in the majority of households in India. This is such a paradox that has amazed everybody all across the world.

‘Maidens of Fate’ tells the stories of twelve such Indian women in their various trials and tribulations in this vast land. All the stories in this book have been partially inspired by real-life women and the various situations that they find themselves in from time to time, with love, loss, joy, grief or happiness. The maidens here give us an understanding of what women go through emotionally from the perspective of Indian society and its collective psyche. The stories in the book are not only a unique read for all the women; they will also enable the men in this country to examine their role from a broader perspectivein various situations.
