I am an 84-year-old veterinarian. My literary pursuits started with the blessings from his Holiness, Satguru Sainath Maharaj (Shirdi). As a veterinarian, I travelled to numerous remote villages of Rajasthan. The stories of the Rajput societies, especially during the British rule in the 19th century, always amused me. The prevailing social evils painted a bleak picture of the past.
But much before the term 'Feminism' became socially relevant, few brave women raised their voices against social inequality. The novel, initially written in Bengali, is a fictionalised telling of one such rebel organization and their fight for emancipation.
Eventually, my readers compelled me to translate the novel in English, as they believed that this story deserves a much wider audience. The novel is dedicated to those who have fought for the cause of 'Beti Bachao Andolan' (Save the Girl Child Movement).
I hope to inspire them further in their noble endeavours. I take this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to everyone who inspired me and gave their unflinching support. Without them, it would not have been possible to publish this novel. A special mention must be made of Mr Bobby Bose, who undertook the task of publishing the novel.
