In the Glow of Your Being (Tumhari Roshni Mein)
Epitomizes the tribulations faced by modern Indian women in every aspect of life, shackled by fetters imposed by society in the
name of tradition, culture, and value systems. Also brings to fore the hypocrisy of the male-dominated society, which frowns at even a simple semi-platonic, nonphysical relationship a woman might develop to fill some void in her life.
