This book - an award winning novel - is based on the astonishing life of Chandraprabha Saikiani, who may be justly called the first 'feminist' in Assam. As the author shows, this gusty character was humanized by her frailties, contradictions and desires.
By plunging into the narrative the reader sees how Chandraprabha transcends her personal grief - especially a frustrated love affair and the burden of a being a single mother - to become a significant presence in the socio-political landscape of Assam
