Books By Shalini Mullick
In this short story collection by Women's Web, we see women from all walks of life - young women just stepping out into the wider world, working women, women achievers, homemakers, mothers, grandmothers, and so many more who defy an attempt to box them into a description.
We have 19 stories in all, by 16 authors. Shalini Mullick has two stories - one about a young woman who has consciously tried to move away from her mother's choices, and another about the intuition a mother has about her child. Ujwala Shenoy Karmarkar makes us sit up and take notice of a grandmother-granddaughter duo united against a social evil, and in another story takes the reader back 200 years with an excellently narrated historical fiction tale. Manisha Sahoo, our 3rd author with 2 stories here, takes us right inside an emergency situation inside a hospital, and in another story inspires us with a woman who wins a victory over a deep seated phobia. Urmi Chakravorty shows us the nuances of the relationship between sisters in law who might almost be of two separate generations, and the stark difference in the choices they make. Prasanna Rao’s protagonist takes a crucial, principled stand against what her family advises, while the protagonist of Barkha Shah’s story has a relaxed first day after her divorce has come through. Garima Kumar Hosangadi’s story is about healing from unexpected trauma that has driven a rift between a loving couple, while Vijayalakshmi Harish writes about how a ‘soulmate’ need not be a spouse, and that a queerplatonic relationship can happen outside a marriage without threatening it. Meha Sharma writes about a young depressed woman whose mother shows her how to draw happiness back to herself, while Swagata Tarafdar takes us into mythology, showing us the depths of a mother’s sorrow at being taken for granted by both her child and her spouse. Shweta Singh’s protagonist shows us that everyone has something they could do really well even if they stumble at the ordinary, and Sangeetha Bhaskaran’s story shows that nothing is so dire that it cannot be dealt with with some calm thinking. Janani Balaji (our youngest writer at 15) writes about childhood sweethearts who can change drastically after they become husband and wife, and Priya Mani tells us about revenge, the dish that is best served cold. Sreemati Sen tackles the deeply ingrained patriarchy that deems a daughter a second class citizen, and Seema Taneja shows how a mother in law realises that she was being THE MOTHER IN LAW for no reason at all!

What is true love? Who are soulmates? Can love be defined by the constructs of society and convention? Can an affair rescue a marriage? Can true love ever tear
Two college mates fall in love, only to be separated-their love stays steady, though they meet just twice in forty years.
A close-knit family, shadows from the past, a lingering suspicion, and a relationship put to the test.
An emotionally unavailable husband, a hurt wife; and an affair that redeems and transforms.
Three strong women, and their journeys. And love, as mature and strong as them. In these times of speed dating, hook-ups, and break-ups, Stars from the Borderless Sky, a collection of three riveting stories, takes an unconventional, honest, empathetic look at that most universal of human emotions—love.
