Baanjh: Incomplete Lives of Complete Women

Eleven hard-hitting stories gathered from the observations of a seasoned actress, Susmita Mukherjee, who has portrayed many strong characters, and observed much across the country. Baanjh—incomplete lives of complete women, a collection of short stories based on the authors observations, takes you on a journey into the world of women from the society fringes as well as the high echelons—with entitled husbands and regressive labels; with high-power jobs and insecurities; with obsessions and mental issues; with open views on marriage and divorce; with oppressive employers driving them to the hilt; where lines of morality blur between the girlfriend and the wife. Susmita makes you gasp, ponder, empathise and look at life like never before. The stories reiterate the fact that a woman’s worth is much more than just the labels that the society bestows on her.
