Book- Stories on Women by Premchand

Premchand is a pen name. Originally named Dhanpat Rai wrote a lot of stories under the name of the pen name, "Nawab Rai." He was summoned by the Britishers to warn and advise him on his stories. 

From then, he changed his pen name to, 'Premchand' and wrote the stories. Such progressive stories during the pre-independence era are motivating. 

Women are the central characters in all the short stories compiled in this book. In one story, women are bold and thoughtful, in another nagging and cynical. Premchand got out the stories depicting women in different shades. I loved the Godavari's suicide and the co-wife for the conflict in the story.
