Deevaron Ke Saye Mein - Amrita Preetam

quite liked this collection of stories that are more than stories. Another one read in hindi after a long time. More on this later.

Hey Tess,

If im not wrong the movie Pinjar is based on Amrita Preetam's story right..?

That was an interesting movie..

yup, in fact this collection had one excerpt from that novel, which described the bit about the baby by the mad woman, whom Puro adopts, and then is forced to return. The funny workings of religion as a domination tool..
