Bhalobasha (1963), Talaq (1973), Kabipatni (1985), Kagaboga Geetika (1986), and bolechhilo Pani (1995) - these five stories spanning over three decades, have been translated for this volume. "Five elderly women and the men in their lives: husbands, lovers, sons, and friends. All living in the margines of society, ageing, enduring, struggling to make two ends meet. ... This volume ... shows an unusually tender side to Mahasweta Devi, widely known for her satiric prose and biting indictment of societal inequities." (From the back cover)
