Night Sky Between The Stars by Usha Kishore: Book Review

Night Sky Between The Stars is a collection of 55 poems by Usha Kishore, an Indian born British poet. 

Her poems in this collection express her strong emotion for the Indian womanhood. As a matter of fact, it is not only the poet's emotion, rather, a collective emotion of several Indian woman who have obliged to this country's masculine supremacy since ages.

Several verses in the book shake the core of Indian values, what we proudly call our culture and tradition. 

Written in simple language, the verses are no enigma for a common reader.

The Other End of the Corridor by Sujata Rajpal

Leela is a bored, frustrated, humiliated and childless housewife. She  did have romantic dreams about her marital life and an ardent aspiration to become a RJ. However, with time, her dreams and aspirations get diluted by the constant pressures of her suffocating marriage. 

At a point when her days move without anything to look forward to, she lets her heart and mind waver in the direction of shallow gratifications until something happens that changes her life forever. 

The dormant warrior in her gets revived and she is no more the woman who worships her husband's feet.
