Raimedhi has rendered a singular service by revealing another facet of this very diverse region through a series of fascinating stories of some of its remarkable women who have fought privation, discrimination and adversities of every kind to become icons and blaze new trails.
A wonderful volume of biographical sketches of women of India’s North-East...Indrani Raimedhi is a well known journalist and creative writer in Assam combines the narrative skills of a short story writer with the rigour of a journalist. As a result, all these stories are gripping pieces; with spellbinding immediacy...she uses the narrative techniques of a creative writer, without of course meddling with the facts. She describes them as she would frictional characters, with love and a clear gaze. The descriptive passages enhance, rather than distract from the characterisation.
[The book] profiles 12 women from North-East, all great achievers who have become role models in society....it gives the reader a picture of northeast and its social issues, as seen through the eyes of a compassionate group of activist women.
