My Daughter’s Mum - a first in a series of two books-
plunges deep into essential subjects, from parenting
and marriage, to faith and selfhood.
Knitting together a popular column in Mint Lounge,
new writing, and priceless handcrafted dialogues,
the author describes her journey as the mother
of three young daughters; as the wife of a man
from a religious background unlike her own;
and as an individual with dreams detached
from the roles of wife and mother - here's
a wanderer, a feminist, a workplace goer.
Yet beyond the searingly personal, this is a memoir
that tells us about an India that is fast transforming,
and where questions of identity and personal freedom,
are in dialogue with ideas of nationality. The can idn
of the author's voice, the gentle humour of f1eeting
narratives, and the fragility of diary entries,
photographs, collages, and sketches will make
My Daughters' Mum resonate with every reader.
