Shakti (Real-Life Stories Celebrating Women Power)
Description
About The Book

Shakti is an exciting anthology which showcases 14 crisp and wonderful stories about varied women whom the author, Maloy Dhar, me during his childhood, college days and his tenure in the IB.

The author delves deep into his labyrinth of his sensitive chords and tries to encrypt the heroic stories of these women. All the stories are as varied as the women themselves and depict how these women fight their way out from the situations they encounter. From portraying the undying love of his friends from college days, to the harrowing account of a riot-victim, a famous starlet's flight for her real identity, the author has woven for beautiful tapestry which throws abundant light on the foundation of all creations Shakti.

Dhar has even dared to write against his lecherous boss who impregnates his maid's daughter, and pushes the innocent into the debauch world of beggary. He has exposed certain political leaders who still indulge in the practice of 'bounded labour' in their fiefdoms and machinated organized killings. Dhar's biggest regret is that he could not do anything for her. The stories paint life as it is rather than trying to be didactic, though there is a strong element of projection of women's intrinsic power to flight against societal evils.

About The Author

After joining the Indian Police Service in 1964, he was seconded to the Intelligence Bureau, a platform that offered him in-depth perceptions and insight into Indian politics, insurgency, counterterrorist, counterintelligence and other ground realities of the nation.

Some of the best sellers are Open Secrets India's Intelligence Unveiled; Fulcrum of Evil ISI, CIS AI Qaeda Nexus, Operation Triple X, Black Thunder and We the People of India: A Story of Gangland Democracy.

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...
