Katha: Short Stories by Indian Women
Edited by Urvashi Batalia
Whether it is in the kitchen or elsewhere, Indian women's stories have been handed down from generation to generation, enriched and embroidered along the way.
But with the coming of political change and print culture many women's voices were silenced. It is only in more recent times that these voices can again be heard, in all their confidence and variety.
This collection covers many languages and cultures and reflects the vast and complex cultures of India.
Part of a series showcasing contemporary women writers from around the world.
