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.
