These stories, translated from stories written in major Indian languages, give us a glimpse into lives of our women, cutting through class and caste. The stories reflect different ways women see themselves or are regarded by others: as essentially female; as rebellious, resisting the norms of patriarchal society; as victims of social injustice and religious bigotry. They bring into open the struggles and aspirations of women.

The short stories in the present selection are also life-fragments which leave an enduring impact on the subject and his/her surroundings. These stories which are translated from stories written in major Indian languages not only provide a glimpse into Indian women's experience, they also indicate the fine tapestry of expression woven out of these experiences by writers writing in regional languages.
