    Description

    A Calendar Too Crowded is a path-breaking book by Sagarika Chakraborty that aims to bring to light the numerous problems faced by the people of India, no matter how detestable those problems might seem.

    Summary Of The Book

    A Calendar Too Crowded can very well be heralded as a refreshing change in Indian literature, owing to the fact that it makes no bones about the shocking and heartbreaking problems faced by the women of India, who are struggling to establish an identity of their own in the world. No matter how unpleasant these problems might seem, the author makes sure to avoid concealing any of them and she portrays them as vividly as she possibly can.

    The book has been written in such a way so as to mark every event in the calendar that is supposed to be celebrated for the upliftment of women. The short stories and poems in this book each focus on one such day and highlight the real issues faced by women in Indian society. One of the stories is titled Barren Yet Ploughed, and focusses on the plight of a woman who is shunned for supposedly being barren, even though the real problem lies with her husband instead. Through the course of this book, the author also throws light on the problems faced by women who are forced to join the sex trade industry.

    Behind Those Whispers is a poem based on a fictional account of a girl who remains distant in every way from her loved ones, only because she is made to understand that she suffers from dirty blood during her menstrual cycle. This has been portrayed in the light of International Women’s Day. These accounts, and many more help to familiarize the readers with the numerous harrowing problems faced by women in India today. Although the stories present in this book are fiction, the readers can very well relate to them, as they depict events that do happen in real life.

    perfect expressions

    The book “ A Calendar too Crowded” revolves around the plight of women and the issues which we might sometimes ignore. A bitter truth which comes out is that injustice does not happen only outside the “safe and loving” homes but it can also take place inside the concrete walls of homes. The story , 'Choices without Options' , tells how women are abused inside the home, about the marital rape and domestic violence. And that is not all, stories like “rape without penetration’ and ‘Selling a Bod...

    Commendable work ..

    The title of the book “ a calendar too crowded “ can bring confusion to your mind that the book is a collection of women centered stories but it is not the case. Writer explains various issues which are hurting the women’s state in today’s era with lots of hope.
    She amazingly talks about domestic violence, plight of an old lady, desire for a boy child and much more. The story 'An Equal Friendship' where Panchali writes a letter to Krishna contradicting the fact that women are not treated equ...

    worth read!!!

    Writer Sagarika throws light on the condition of women in the society in a brilliant way. Of the many issues faced by the women in today’s world, I am especially touched with the description of prostitution in the book. She explains how the physical union between a man and a woman which should only be after their emotional and spiritual bond becomes a means of livelihood, the story is painful. After that, the story tells about the hardships a woman in prostitution faces to keep her daughter...

    voice of woman!!!

    Great job done by sagarika. This book really forms a strong argument for women empowerment and her position in the society. Stories cover the roles which a woman plays in her entire life cycle. I like the expressions used by the writer to express the feelings of woman in different situations, like when she meets her first crush when she has already spent considerable time with her husband. Writer also presents social condition of woman, and her rights have still a long way to go. She also exp...

    not just fiction

    This book is not just as a collection of story and a work of fiction. The spectrum of the phases of women’s life has been shown in a very descriptive and clear manner. Using a mix of stories, essays and poetry to convey her point, Chakraborty covers issues ranging from dowry deaths to harassment and violence on the roads, to trauma inflicted on a woman when unable to bear children, to a woman getting her priorities right. The point which Chakraborty tries to make is that though it looks as if...

    Voices of She for She

    Women have been waging a battle against the society since the time immemorial. She gains ground but the success sadly does not spill onto the society and all women. Hence the need of waging crusade has been a continuous state of affair.

    A Calendar Too crowded: Sagarika Chakraborty is such a war directed against time and the society: the perpetrators of crime against women.
    This is not a book but release of HER angst against the society and time, a clarion call for emancipation, a call for ...

    Gutsy!

    What an unusual debut for such a young author! The book is gutsy and uninhibited with a vengeance that is hallmark of a firebrand writer not afraid to shock her readers out of a comfortable reverie. That in itself deserves an applaud. Each story in this book will make you stop in your tracks and reassess you world view to accommodate some of the uncomfortable truths the writer has brandished. It is a must read for any and everyone who wants their literary pursuits to be a notch above mere pul...
