About the Book

A feeling for Feminism is a collection of stories written by V.K. Subramanian, which reflects his empathy for women, especially the women of India.

In these stories, various feminine facets are dealt with understanding and insight: women as affectionate sisters, tender, loving mothers, devoted wives and women facing the brutal realities of life: betrayal, disappointment and ingratitude.

The reader will enjoy meeting these women characters created by Subramanian (all drawn from life): Lali, Kamala, Amba, Alamelu, Ranee, Janaki, Susheela, Shobhana, Sunanda, Rajee, Rita, Lakshmi, Meena, Leela, Aarti, Roopa, Lekha, Reena, Parvati and Supriya.

A feeling for Feminism will provide entertaining reading for all. For feminists it will be soothing nectar. For those who live outside India, the book will be a revealing guide to the social mores of India.

To movie makers and television producers, it will be a veritable treasure house of ideas.
