Translated for the first time into English, this volume is a compilation of short stories written by leading Kannada women writers.

The stories included in this volume focus on women, in their different roles - a modern housewife, an illiterate home-maker, sculptor's wife from the medieval times, a reluctant wife married to an elderly widower, a mother - caught between conservatism and modernity. The spectrum of issues raised in these stories move beyond the feminist, reflecting changing social mores from the later 1940s to the contemporary times.
