Soumyadeep Koley’s “Her Resurrection: A Survivor’s Journey of emancipation, Reclamation and Redemption”
Good and bad are part and parcel of life. Everything is not good, and everything not bad. Things have shades of grey, so does people. So it’s in you how you grow with them and out of them. Any moment can bring tsunami in your tranquil world and any other moment can prove to be the last straw of hope in this bleak world. That’s how I would like to summarize this book. I won’t spoil t...more

In One Line: Like a phoenix, Maya, the protagonist of this story, rose from the ashes every time she was doused in one.
Characterisation: It is Maya’s story all the way. And yes, she is truly Maya – the power by which the universe becomes manifest. How else can one who has gone through so much make it to where she reaches ultimately? Maybe it’s the ‘woman strength’? Or maybe this is the kind of courage that one develops after one is completely broken. Maya’s character has b ...more

Cover and Title
The image of tainted woman's face with blood red tears is the cover of the novel. The cover is successfull in depicting the immense pain that our protagonist. Maya undergoes in the story.
The title is equally apt as the second half of the story deals with fighting the society and reclaiming back a normal life after a series of painful events kill Maya emotionally.
My views of the Plot
The p ...more
The cover page is very colourful and has done full justice to the plot. I would definitely pick it up at least once if I see it in a bookshelf.
