About The Book
My Daughters Mum-a first in a series of two essay collections- covers a range of essential subjects, from parenting and marriage, to faith and selfhood. Knitting together a popular column in Mint Lounge, new writing, and priceless handcrafted dialogues, the author describes her journey as the mother of three young daughters; as the wife of a man from a religious background unlike her own; and as an individual with dreams detached from the roles of wife and mother-heres a wanderer, a feminist, a workplace goer.
Yet beyond the searingly personal, this is a memoir that tells us about an India that is fast transforming, and where questions of identity and personal freedom are in dialogue with ideas of nationality. The candidness of the authors voice, the gentle humour of fleeting narrative, and the fragility of diary entries, photographs, collages, and sketches will make My Daughters Mum resonate with every reader.
