My Daughters’ Mum—a first in a series of two essay collections—covers a range of essential subjects, from parenting and marriage, to faith and selfhood. Knitting together a popular column in Mint Lounge, new writing, and priceless handcrafted dialogues, the author describes her journey as the mother of three young daughters; as the wife of a man from a religious background unlike her own; and as an individual with dreams detached from the roles of wife and mother—here’s a wanderer, a feminist, a workplace goer.
Yet, beyond the searingly personal, this is a memoir that tells us about an India that is fast transforming, and where questions of identity and personal freedom are in dialogue with ideas of nationality. The candidness of the author’s voice, the gentle humor of fleeting narrative, and the fragility of diary entries, photographs, collages, and sketches will make My Daughters’ Mum resonate with every reader.
Natasha began her career in broadcast journalism with New Delhi Television (NDTV) as the first female videographer in news television in India. She quit 13 years later as Vice President, Training and Development and now works as an independent film-maker, media trainer and fashion entrepreneur. She is also popular for her blog: http://mydaughtersmum.blogspot.in/
