It’s a story of ups and downs-of hope and despair- of tears and joys.
It’s the saga of the common Indian female.
common Indian female who have been exploited by centuries by a male dominated patriarch society- where she is considered a commodity- a mere commodity like the cattle of the house- sometimes she is valued far below than the valuable cattle.
Today she is making her presence felt in every sphere of life- she is proving that she can perform far better than her male counterparts even in the

In my opinion ,the book totally achieved its goal.It showed exactly what the author wanted the book to show -love and respect for women.The book really emphasises and is a true example of the concept that the hand that rocks the cradle can also rule the world. I would recommend this book to everyone.I think it will make teenagers of my age appreciate their mothers even more, it will make young women want to be mothers much more,fight for their rights and men will understand how hard it is to be ...more

Before I even go to the book review I’d like congratulate the author for his tremendous efforts in bringing this book to reality. Not only the concept is quite commendable, the presentation of the book, including the book cover, bookmark and everything else is great. However, one thing that disappointed me was that why did the author forget to mention anything about the ladies whose stories he wrote in the acknowledgement? I mean he might have done that elsewhere, but not in the acknowledgment p ...more

My Copy of this book

This book has a collection of 7 stories about 7 ordinary Indian women, who lived extraordinary lives.
Story 1: Domestic Violence
Story 2: Success
Story 3: Poverty
Story 4: Hard Work
Story 5: Helping the Poor
Story 6: Social Service
Story 7: Poverty

The stories were great. Although, the thing which irritates me, is the portrayal of the story. This book was the debut book of Virendra Narayan Desai, for which I may say, is the reason why the author's

The book is a very different approach to narration of stories. While we read the success stories of famous people, we feel a trickle of inspiration. But this book is a one of its kind, for it tells the stories which inspire to the core. They are common women like the readers, and what has set them apart from others is the fact that they have been warriors.
No wonder three cheers go for the intention and motivation behind the writing of this book.

However, the book is not a package. Somehow it lack

This book sensitivizes you to the many problems of common women and how they overcome them with grit and determination. But, many a times, these women remain as unsung heroes and the world is lost in the false charm and glamour of the celebrity women. The stories of the women narrated in the book are extraordinary and it makes you identify with them in many ways. Many a times we come across many ordinary women in our lives whose faces are so serene and calm on surface but deep within them there ...more
