Reviewed in India on 3 April 2015
An absolute must-read! This book is a contemporary analysis of gender relations in India. Although set in a dystopian society, it is scarily evocative of both the present social situation of women in India today and the future we are heading to. Any college going girl in India would know that a dupatta regulator is not simply the wet dream of rightwing extremists, ‘traditional’, 'modest' outfits are compulsory in many educational institutions already. Through the use of satire, the author critiques institutions such as marriage and family, which have largely remained unquestioned and unchallenged in our society. Seamlessly blending serious analysis with humour and empathy, this book should be read by anyone concerned with the prevailing gender norms in India today.
