BOOK REVIEW: Behind The Darkness

I read this book in again less than 2 hours. It gripped me like anything. This book is basically a collection of short stories about Women in the Indian context. The author talks about some serious issues in the book. The darkness about which the author talks about is nothing, but the darkness in women’s lives because of many reasons like depression, domestic responsibilities, emotional sufferings, marital problems, frustration towards society etc.

This book is well written by the author. The narration is clear and the language is easy to understand the character’s complex emotions and situations. It helps the reader get absorbed and not get bored. I did find the book cover attractive, relatable and well designed.

The stories in this entire book are completely based on day-to-day issues faced by women till this date, especially in India. It’s a must-read for all women. Each short story in this book is thought-provoking. The stories touched my heart and I could literally sense the pain women go through. Every single person should read this book.

Men should read this book to realize the importance of women in their lives and society. Women should read this book to understand other women and to support them in their hard times.

After reading this book, I definitely want to read more book written by the author. I highly encourage the author to keep on writing such stories because we need stories that demand a change for the good of society in whole.

Born in 1963, Mousumi grew up as a loving daughter of a well-educated family, in naturally beautiful Tripura. Mousumi graduated in pure science from the Calcutta University and joined as a science teacher in the School Education Department.  By this time she got married and accompanied her husband to a remote construction project site.

What she observed and felt in this remote natural environment, are later reflected well in her writings. Passion for English Literature motivated her to continue with studies. Though mired by daily family chores, she acquired, one after another, B.Ed., M.A, and M.Phil. in English Literature.
