It is often said, that men cannot understand women. It is true to some extent, but if a woman can write so beautifully and express the woman in her, men can at least come close to a woman’s thinking….Sesh has done that with her wonderful work – Darpan (yes a mirror to oneself)
I was born in a Nair family, where a woman is head of the family and more empowered than most Indian communities. But understanding women from different perspectives was also important to me.
Sesh has done a wonderful work by brining this many aspects of a woman in such a simple and profound manner. These stories are not just short and easy to read, but also profound in nature.
One cannot but associate with each of the characters as if it was one’s own mother, sister, wife or daughter. I felt like a woman, as I was reading through these stories. Maybe, making me a better man.
I suggest let this book be called a family book rather than a women’s book. Let each family read a story and discuss and share those emotions, feelings and learnings. Thus making each other respect and appreciate each other.
Sesh has an amazing way of storytelling, the way it is told in our Indian tradition. Stories are a way to a persons’ heart and feelings. But each story has a different moral for every person.
So read on to find your moral and meaning from each story. Best wishes Sesh for a best seller in making
