This book is a compilation of select editorials penned by the author in Vivekananda Kendra’s magazine, Yuva Bharati, projecting her insights into the uniqueness of Indian womanhood, often repeated by Swami Vivekananda. She perceives the role of a woman as an evolutionary force with unlimited dimensions, which makes her a social anchor par excellence to steer the value system in everyday life. She is a true home-maker as a secure family unit makes for a secure society. And her true emancipation lies in playing this role to perfection, at all levels-emotional, intellectual and spiritual.
