Chandrika Balanís Arya & Other stories released



Orient BlackSwan has recently released Chandrika Balanís collection of short fiction, ĎArya and Other storiesí. These stories were originally written in Malayalam and the author herself has translated them into English. The book has an introduction by the noted poet K Satchidanandan.

 

The book is a collection of twelve short stories by Chandrika Balan, known in the Malayalam literary world as Chandramati. Balan brings to the reader glimpse into the world of the woman in a village where feminism has reached. Here men know what feminism is; women know they can be independent; and children know that their mother is not a caring-bearing machine. Balanís exploration is into the kind of questions a woman here goes through.
