Voices in the Back Courtyard


Default Title

Fifteen women writers come together, weaving a spectrum of varied hues, each turning a page out of the book of her life's experience as a woman - and the result is a patchwork of beautiful narratives. Right from Amrita Pritam of the 50s, to Veena Verma of the 21st century, this book traces a sinuous path of struggle, emotional turmoil, unfulfilled dreams and social rejection, which becomes a source of strength for these writers.

The stories are representatives of Punjab's social milieu, its myopic attitude towards women, along with its revelry and celebration of life, which is a sustaining force for its people.
