Elisabeth Bumiller – May You Be the Mother of a Hundred Sons: A Journey Among the Women of India
Published: 1991-04-30 | ISBN: 0449906140 | EPUB / MOBI | 320 pages | 4 MB


In a chronicle rich in diversity, detail, and empathy, Elisabeth Bumiller illuminates the many women’s lives she shared–from wealthy sophisticates in New Delhi, to villagers in the dusty northern plains, to movie stars in Bombay, intellectuals in Calcutta, and health workers in the south–and the contradictions she encountered, during her three and a half years in India as a reporter for THE WASHINGTON POST. In their fascinating, and often tragic stories, Bumiller found a strength even in powerlessness, and a universality that raises questions for women around the world.
