This story is an extract from the anthology titled Gendered Space, which puts together stories in English or their translations from some of the major Indian languages. These stories not only provide a glimpse into the Indian women’s experience through time, but also reflect a sheer variety of themes, making women’s voices stronger and more urgent in the contemporary scenario. Arjun takes us into the world of insurgency and politics, and registers the opinion of women and their strong voice. Not only does it show the subaltern, it unassumingly reveals how often the oppression and exploitation by the dominant class is a reason behind militant insurgency.
