Description
About the Author
Shruthi Rao (shruthi-rao.com) studied to be an energy engineer and worked as software professional until her story-gobbling-monster-daughter pulled out the writer lurking inside her. She writes for both adults and children, and is a freelance editor. She loves books, science, trees, desserts, hikes and the internet.

Introduction
This book contains the stories of ten remarkable Indian women who were pioneers in their fields.

We usually encounter many of their names in answer sheets of general knowledge test banks, or as passing paragraphs in magazine articles (of course, Indira Gandhi is the clear exception here). But often, when we view their stories through the lens of the twenty-first century, without an idea of the society they lived in, we do not realise the full measure of their achievements. In this book, I have tried to describe the historical setting in which they lived and worked, and I hope the reader will be able to fathom the magnitude of the journey these women each undertook, and imagine what it must have been like to take that first step-like stepping off a cliff into the unknown!

In today's context, it seems normal that these women did what men had always done. A large part of the contribution of these women was exactly that-they made it normal for women to do anything they wanted to.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
