Publisher's Summary

The journey of motherhood can be a challenging and tumultuous one for a woman. In this audiobook, author Ankita Jain presents a plethora of possibilities, promises and reality checks that the experience of motherhood can bring. The book is the outcome of a collection of columns penned by the author during her days of pregnancy. While socially, motherhood is assumed to be a fulfilling phase in a woman’s life, it is also beset with challenges, and at each stage, the woman also makes a choice about her body, her life, relationships, family and future.   

The audiobook opens with a glimpse into a women’s hostel, amid gossip, ambition and the humdrum of daily life, a young woman declares her decision to get married and have a child. This surprises the others as they remember her earlier stubborn and strong resolve to avoid marriage for the next few years till she settles down in her career. What made her change her mind so suddenly? Is this her independent decision or the pressure of family and society? These are questions that define the experiences of several Indian women today.   

The author explores socio-cultural nuances as she describes the journey of motherhood that begins with these life choices. How does a woman’s world transform, and how does her relationship with her body change during pregnancy? Does the world view her differently once she is a mother? How does she balance the family’s expectations with her own aspirations? The audiobook provides a compelling account of the joy and challenges of understanding motherhood.

Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi.
