I, DURGA KHOTE: An Autobiography
I, DURGA KHOTE: An Autobiography
Description
From the Jacket:

She is the account of he life and work of an actress who entered the world of Indian films when women from respectable families were still forbidden to do so. The era of silent movies was coming to an end, and the new talkies gave Durga Khote the opportunity to showcase her talent.

Catapulted into the film industry by early marriage and premature widow hood her autobiography reveals Khote's grit in the face of tragedy her determination to be independent, and her constant desire to learn. While her professional life was marked by success her personal life was overshadowed by disappointments and tragedies.

Durgabai weaves together the bright and dark strands of her life with the skill of a born storyteller and in a style that is lively crisp, direct and often humourous. She goes beyond the narrowly personal to give first-hand glimpses of the social, political and cultural life of the times. Durga emerges from these pages not as a woman exploited by the world of men but as one who went out into the world and explored it with zest.

Shanta translation from the Marathi retains the flavours and nuances of the original work. Gayatri Introduction discusses the genre of personal writing particularly in Marathi literature and Contextualizes Durga within it.

This autobiography will interest readers of Indian literature in translation, autobiographies and Indian Cinema, as well as students of women's studies. It will especially appeal to Mumbaikars as much of Durga Khote's story is about the city and its people.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
