My grandma was a brave and very strong woman whom I always adore. I miss her always and I always remember how she used to pick me up in her arms even when her one leg had been fractured.For me she is a super woman.Thanks Dad for writing on my wonderful grandmom.

It is indeed a story worth reading for any young lady. The mother of the writer was a a brave lady who fought an uneven battle against the social norms of the society prevailing even today in some parts of the world. She is a true champion for the cause of girls' education in rural areas.

I am always fascinated by cultures that hold restrictions on intellectual growth and personal contribution based on gender and economic standing. Where do these cultural beliefs originate from and how long will these oppressive institutions last?
I appreciated that this book was written in Hiranya Borah's own voice. I thank Hiranya Borah, for this insightful book. A salute to him and his mother for their courage. Many good thoughts and good feeling to them on their journey.
