    A good book, an extract from it.

    Growing up in an India full of gender biases, Sanchita needed a lot of luck, grit, determination and support, in her case to a certain limited extent, from her brother to get where she is now. She told me, ‘When I look at the mirror, I see myself as both a prisoner of birth in certain aspects (certain inhibitions inculcated due to gender biased ideas from my childhood) and also a prisoner of circumstances. But when I see my daughter growing up in a free society, I see her as a free personalit...

    A timely book

    A timely & well written book. There is a good mix of anecdotes, data & research in this book. It is pretty easy reading even though there are a lot of numbers & statistics for those inclined to delve deeper into the subject. Hopefully this book sparks off more work on this subject. An overall optimistic point of view leaves one with a positive feel, given the somewhat pessimistic outlook seen more often in mass media.

    Undressing the Naked Truth

    The multifarious fields of education has perennially engaged themselves into a ceaseless warfare of high intellectualizing and philosophizing. Often in the classroom scenario at higher educational institutions our professors chew high ethics about feminism, existentialism etc etc. But in the rush of late capitalism where the sublimated value of knowledge has been commodified and packaged into the market, how many of us really look for its practical implications? In an age of global or glocal...

    Life is not fair but it's still good

    A chronicle of changing India, with women leading the charge , Anirudha Dutta's book stands out like a beacon of reason, amid seas of chaos.
    In the times that we live in, with newspapers reporting newer and more gruesome crimes against women each morning, TV channels decrying /gloating alternatively about the same, the book is like a breath of cool mountain air. My sincere congratulations to the author for bringing forth data that is heartening to say the least. The ratio of educated women, ...
