“One of the most enduring cliches
about India is that it is the country of
contradictions . Like all cliches , this one
too has a grain of truth in it . At the
heart of the contradiction stand Indian
women : for it is true to say that they
are among the most oppressed in the
world and it is equally true to say that
they are the most liberated , the most
articulated and perhaps even the most
free . Can these two realities be
simultaneously true ?”
