She is an attempt to search for one’s identity irrespective of all odds. What makes it unique are it’s two most important aspects – the protagonist (Kusum) and Tagore’s song, Ekla Cholo Re. The identity of the protagonist is often untitled and blurred; it does not belong anywhere, definitely not under the ‘he’ or ‘she’ bracket because of our social conditioning. We normally do not give ‘social sanction’ to ‘such’ people because we ‘pretend’ that they do not exist, albeit for our own convenience. So, when a person like Kusum decides to move on with her life despite all odds, it deserves a special mention, indeed. As the editor cum reader of this book, I grew with Kusum each day in complete awe as she drew inspiration from Tagore’s Ekla Cholo re song to be her true self each time she was struck with a heavy blow. – Rajashree Ghosh, Editor of She (Rating ★★★★1/2)
Simple language, easy to read, subject is dealt that could connect any reader. Though seemed filmy at moment but story was unpredictable with an interesting end that made me feel ‘surprised’! I rate it 5 out of 5! -Parveen Shaikh, Research Scholar, Dept of Social Work, KSWUV (Rating ★★★★★)
‘She’ is amazing! – Jyothi Byahatti (Rating ★★★★★)
Blurb: Set in the backdrop of 1990 Calcutta, She is a story about finding one’s own identity in spite of all odds. The story spins around the life of Kusum, a brave heart whose identity is often untitled and blurred; it does not belong anywhere, definitely not under the ‘he’ or ‘she’ bracket, thanks to our social conditioning. Will she be successful in her mission? Find out in She, an utterly absorbing read that derives inspiration from Tagore’s “Ekla Cholo Re” song, which urges everyone to move on despite the fear of abandonment from others.
