Motherhood is a much lauded and valued state of being, especially in India. But the experience of motherhood is often lonely and difficult with very little meaningful support. Women, rarely asked if they desire motherhood, largely embrace it with grace and enthusiasm. Authors Rinki Roy Bhattacharya and Sudha Menon go beyond the usual tropes to discuss the varying dynamic of mothers and motherhood, and lessons for daughters.
Rinki Bhattacharya is a writer, columnist and documentary film-maker.
