    Description
    In a culture described as 'punctuated by question marks', what is the role of women?

    Is she a meal ticket? A punching bag? A caretaker for old parents, offspring etc.? A business deal maker? The working partner? The third wheel?

    Or a person in her own right-holding on to her space, her identity while countering intimidation?

    Kusum Choppra's hitherto untold stories, tongue-in-cheek or serious, offer insights into the functioning of women's minds
    Of different approaches to life after a divorce.
    Of the greedy exploitation of the widows of Kargil's martyrs.
    Of a sister fighting for inheritance to protect her mother from her brother.
    Of a burnt bride fighting her way back-to life and emotional freedom.
    Of a simple village woman protecting her aged in-laws from the greed of her husband and his new wife.
    Of widows grasping at their slices of life. And why not?
    Of a challenge to Pati Parmeshwar's right to select surrogates!

    The stories are of women surviving their ordeals to move on in life.

    About the Author

    A life trajectory through Singapore, Jakarta, Pune, Delhi and Ahmedabad, myriad experiences in alternate medicine, environment conservation, handicrafts, history, numerology plus three odd decades in journalism provide Kusum Choppra with a rich background for writing from women's viewpoints, picking out grains of truth to tell stories that set aside patriarchal inculcation, for a female perspective.

    Two novels-a post partition generational saga beyond diamond rings and a historical novel that blasted many myths, Mastani, preceded this anthology of stories that delve into the internal conversations women often have with themselves about people, places and emotional encounters.

    Heartwarming tales of women who "dared" to dare

    As I can see, quite a few people have posted their reviews here. What I’m going to share is my experience with this book. (Not sure if it would qualify as a review.)

    So I ordered this book on Tuesday last week. Having had the privilege of being an editor of one of the books (Beyond Diamond Rings) authored by Mrs Kusum Choppra, I was familiar with her uninhibited writing style and story-telling expertise. Also, I found the theme and the cover of this book quite intriguing and so decided to pl...

    Review from Storage of Mind

    “Nirbhaya & others who DARED” is a collection of 22 stories based on various strata of society. Few of them are Thakuraains and few of them are peasants.

Trodden and humiliated by world, this gender has suffered from the very day of her creation and it has continued till date. The form of injustice and suffering continues in many way. Rape, adultery, infanticide, dowry, h...

    A must read for every woman

    unfortunately every woman has moments in life when they have to be nirbhaya! this book is about winning those moments. it is an athology, but you want to read it through and through at the first go. my 13 year old niece also read it and loved it. i believe that this book is a must have for every indian woman anywhere in the world.

    my favorite is "A Survivors Tale"- through and through a winner!

    A book of hope and courage

    Nirbhaya & Others Who Dares is a book that provides us with hope and courage. It speaks about different lives of various women and their struggles. It gives me strength to keep going even in toughest situations. My favorite stories are Lila Aur Marathan and Jai Ma. It teaches me that how a lady can be gentle, jovial and still be strong. For every girl and wome out there, it is a must read! You will only be revived to relive your life without any guilt.
