About the Book


 

Rapes that are too commonplace, and are as ordinary as arrival and departure of trains – are the discussion topics. The book talks of rapes and prostitutes; it talks of hollowness and fakeness of our existences. This is 2016 and still human beings as barbarians move around. Technology, lifestyle and gadgets cannot make us humans. Humans are distinguished by their desires, emotions and ability to think – so, we eat, sleep, drink, have sex, like animals, but also feel, aspire, and have infinite capacities to evolve spiritually. Unfortunately, we as beings are everything but humans, so we are ‘minus’ humans, worse than animals or insects.

This work is no story narration – for the world to read – with fingers crossed – that ‘what next’. It is a thought process and a penning down of all that the author feels as a woman and as a being (if the world regards her as one).

 

 


About the Author


 

Dr. Shweta Mishra ‘shawryaa’ is an Assistant Professor in English, posted at F.A.A. Government Post Graduate College, Mahmudabad, Uttar Pradesh. She has done her doctoral work on African American women writers and her thesis has been published as Image of Girlhood in the Fiction of African-American Women Writers by Prestige Books International, New Delhi in 2011. This is her first venture into creative writing. Though this book appears to be a feminist statement but she claims to be just a human being, who would speak on any issue that concerns the ones who are suffering, who are exploited and are wronged, rather than wanting to be nailed down with a board and a category on it.

Apart from teaching, the author loves to write poetry and believes that as a thinker it would be a futile existence if she is not able to make a slight difference in the world towards knowledge, light and purity.
