SHAKTI is an exciting anthology which showcases 14 crisp and wonderful stories about varied women whom the author met during his childhood, college days and his tenure in the Intelligence Bureau. The author delves deep into the labyrinth of his sensitive chords and tries to encrypt the heroic stories of these women. All the stories are as varied as the women themselves and depict how these women fought their way out from the situations they encountered. From portraying the undying love of his friends from his college days, to the harrowing account of 1984 riot-victim, and a famous starlet's fight for her real identity, the author has woven a beautiful tapestry which throws abundant light on the foundation of all creations-SHAKTI, the primeval life-force and sources of all energy.The author has even dared to write about his lecherous boss who impregnates his maid's daughter and pushes the innocent into the debauch world of beggary. He has exposed certain political leaders who still indulge in the practice of ?bonded labour? in their fiefdoms and machinate organised killings. His biggest regret is that he could not do anything for her.The stories paint life as it is, rather than trying to be didactic. There is a strong element of projection of women?s intrinsic power to fight against social evils and to continue the process of creation.
