Celebrating Women : The Shashi Baliga Memorial Session – Double shift

  • Sunday, 13th Nov
  • 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm IST
  • NCPA, Tata Theatre

Education and financial independence are supposed to give women choices and freedom. But a woman  lives, loves, works, marries, has children, within families and society, who do not always keep pace with her progress, are frequently conflicted about it, and in fact often try and hold her back. A generation of Indian women at the forefront of this revolution experienced unexpected resistance, or unexpected support, and found that gender has some non-negotiable implications.

Arundhati Bhowmick’s book Indomitable was long listed for the Tata Literature Live! Literary Awards 2022.
