   This sequel to Truth Tales contains ten stories by ten of the most renowned and inventive writers of India, translated from nine different languages. Rich in regional flavor, each story offers a glimpse into the everyday lives of Indian women, from the passionate political commitment of a freedom fighter to the struggle of a temple sweeper to survive with dignity. Because India is a huge and higly diverse ccountry, the lives and experiences of these women are vastly different, separated by geography, class, and background. The authors included are Meena Alexander, K. Saraswathi Amma, Bani Basu, Ajeet Cour, Indira Goswami, Binapani Mohanty, Dhiruben Patel, Chudamani Raghavan, Rajee Seth, and Wajida Tabassum.
