Through the Ages, women the world over, have lived under subjugation; women in India have been subjected to various atrocities as well. Nonetheless, despite the odds stacked against them, many have become shining examples for others to follow; not for them the phrase: Frailty thy name is woman.

So it is with the characters, whose stories appear on the pages of this book. Their names may be ordinary, but their show of resilience is extraordinary.

Kavita, Pushpa, Poonam, Deepa, Charu, Aru and Madhuri, hailing from different cities and different strata of the Indian Society, all run into problems not of their making. From fighting to keep their foetuses alive, to confronting the problem of impotency, to avoiding unwarranted advances, to being involved in murders, to giving birth to a baby who talks about his past, to taking care of a son who has cancer, to sustaining a brain haemorrhage, to having a tumour and a baby growing together, to being looked down upon as a divorcee - they face it all. But, their never-say-die attitude stands them in good stead. They tackle their individual problems and come up triumphant.
