Unveiling India: A Women's Journey by Anees Jung

The women in this book are not extraordinary or famous, and yet their stories and testimonies, narrated here by one of India's best-known women journalists, provide a passionate, often deeply touching, revelation of what it means to be a woman in India today. The women tell of marriage and widowhood, unfair work practices, sexual servitude, the problems of bearing and rearing children in poverty, religion, discrimination, other forms of exploitation ... Yet they also talk of fulfilling relationships, the joys of marriage and children, the exhilaration of breaking free from the bonds of tradition, ritual, caste, religion ... Interwoven with all this is the story of one woman's journey--of how Anees Jung, the author, brought up in purdah, succeeded in shaking off the restricting influences of her traditional upbringing to become a highly successful, independent career woman, still a comparatively rare phenomenon in India. As such, the book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the women of India-the silent majority that is now beginning to make itself heard.
