INDELIBLE IMPRINTS: Daughters Write on Fathers
INDELIBLE IMPRINTS: Daughters Write on Fathers
Description
About the Book:

Most women have found the relationship with their fathers to be the key one in helping them to step outside tradition, which remained identified with their mothers. In this unusual book, twelve women, all middle class, some born just after Independence, the oldest in her eighties, talk frankly and sensitively about what their fathers meant to them. Some have famous father: K. K. Hebbar, the artist; Shuksampatrai Bhandari, the pioneer who compiled the first modern Hindi dictionary; a composer of music for the Gujarati stage and cinema; and Bimal Roy, an early art film-maker. Some have fathers who were successful in their careers, others who were not particularly so. The women found that though the relationship with their fathers largely shaped their lives and careers, stress, conflict and resentment were also entwined with support and encouragement.

Written with perception, detachment, appreciation and also searing bitterness, this book reveals many surprising aspects of this crucial relationship as well as insights on the mothers and the women themselves.

About the Author:

Priti T. Desai has just retired from her job with a company in Bombay. Neela D'Souza has taught history, written children's books and is a journalist. Sonal Shukla is the coordinator of Vacha, a women's resource centre, in Bombay.
