About the Book

A writer par excellence. A woman who had the courage to go against the grain. Who thought nothing of flinging societal restrictions to the wind and plunging into selfless service. Who could take that magical and most difficult step that separated truth from hypocrisy.

Sketches from Memory is the autobiography of Laxmibai Tilak, who singularly championed the cause of girls' education in Maharashtra in the early twentieth century. Adeptly translated by Louis Menezes, it traces her relationship with her husband, the revolutionary Marathi poet, Narayan Wamanrao Tilak, through his conversion to Christianity and her self –education.

Katha presents the story of Laxmibai Tilak's zest for life, love and god.
