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 - the result is a patchwork of beautiful narratives. Right from Amrita Pritam of the 1950s, to Veena of the 21st century, this book traces a sinuous path of struggle, emotional turmoil, unfulfilled dreams and social rejection, which these inspirational writers turn into a source of strength. 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.
