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.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
