Book Description Stree an imprint of Bhatkal, Kolkata, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: As New. New. Vinodinee Neelkanth whose life spanned most of the twentieth century (1907 1987) was in today's language an empowered woman who lived her life according to her own beliefs and convictions. Born into one of the leading reformist families of Gujarat she made bold and unconventional choices in her life and she began writing in 1928. Whereas her essays are milestones in Gujarati literature her short stories and novel focused mainly on women. Most of her journalistic writings aimed at encouraging women to speak up for themselves. Insofar as she strove to give women a sense of identity she may be regarded as a precursor of feminist literature of Gujarat. The first part of the volume is a brief biography of Vinodinee Neelkanth placing her life and writing in a historical perspective. Part two consists of translations of selected pieces of here writings from all genres giving an insight into the social change Vinodinee was attempting to bring about. The volume will be of interest not only to students and scholars of gender and feminist studies and sociology but also the general reader. 320 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73910

Book Description Bhatkal & Sen. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Road Less Travelled: The Life and Writings of Vinodinee Neelkanth, Aparna Basu, Shailaja Kalelkar Parikh, Presenting the life and work of Vinodineeben Neelkanth (1907-1987), this book offers a portrait of a woman who played many roles with distinction: as a social activist, a champion of women's rights, in the struggle for independence and as a journalist who wrote the column 'Ghargharni Jyoti' in the daily Gujarat Samachar that made her famous among both women and men. Born into a family that championed social reform and education -- her mother, Vidyagauri, and her aunt Shardaben had become graduates in 1901 -- she made bold and unconventional choices all her life. In 1929, aged twenty-one, she won the prestigious Barbour scholarship at the University of Michigan and gained a Masters degree in sociology and child psychology in 1930. On her return to Ahmedabad, she became the principal of the Municipal High School, earning a living which was unusual for a woman of her privileged background. Later she was to make an unconventional marriage that led to much public criticism and initial ostracism. She also became a writer. Most of her journalistic writings aimed at encouraging women to speak up for themselves and take control of their lives. Insofar as she strove to give women a sense of identity, she may be regarded as one of the precursors of feminist literature of Gujarat. The book traces the social milieu in which she grew up and lived, capturing the immense political and social changes that were coming about by a rapid state of modernisation and urbanisation in the early twentieth century. The translation, for the first time, of her works into English, reveals her critical public gaze on many an institution and practice that had long been held sacred and inviolate. Divided into two parts, Part I offers the Biographical Sketch, while Part II presents selections from her writings as a journalist, her essays, short stories and an extract from a novel.
