Book Description

101 Daughters of India who Shaped the World, is another title in the series of 101 . . . To select only hundred one women from the world of Great Daughters India has produced is in itself a hard task to perform. It is just an honest attempt to present to the readers an interesting and informative description of some of the remarkable Indian Daughters. The book attempts to portray life and works of the women of different eras and styles. Attempt has been made to include daughter of different ages who had made their marks in their respective fields. Their works are still relevant and proved to be milestones for the coming generations. A very brief sketch of every daughter's life makes the reading interesting and it also gives the historical background of that period. The book also details their struggle and achievement in life and how they overcame and conquered obstacles and hardships to pursue their passions.

Great daughter like Jhansi Ki Rani, Laxmibai, Arundhati Roy, Chand Bibi, Kalpana Chawla, Indira Gandhi or Teejan Bai present a kaleidoscopic view of different fields. On one hand, where Rani Laxmibai portrays beginning of the freedom struggle, on the other hand, Kalpana Chawla always loved stars and became one herself. And others give the picturesque scenario of changing faces of historic/modern India. This book tries to present the best-known works of the women from varied fields. Artists with their distinct styles and crafts give the book a variation in reading which will keep the interest of the readers intact till the end.

Here, it is important to mention that the book does not go into the intricacy of the artworks and the field adopted by the different women of various generations. It does not go either in giving the critical analysis of the merits and demerits of their work. I, however, does mention the phases and periods and the times of those works. Appreciations and accolades received from different sections of society, either common people of people from high rank or profile have been mentioned in the book in the same vein as the criticism and disapproval of any work received from any quarter.

This book is aimed not only for art lovers but also for genera readers for whom it will open a vast new world of arts which are timeless and monumental in their grandeur. The struggle, these women have gone through in their lives, will prove inspirational for anyone from any walk of life. So, dive deep into this art world to get the gems of life.
