Format: Kindle edition
The title of the book is ‘I Exist. Therefore I Am’ is very strong and interesting.
The book cover is the digital image of the ‘Woman’ symbol underwater. Which clearly gives a picture that the womanhood is getting drowned in the water, either dead or looking for survival.
Our land is a place where Goddesses are worshipped and respected in an utmost way by everyone. But most of the people fail to treat the Woman and show insolence towards them. Sometimes, they are tormented by the society and family in a physical and mental way which forces them to take the unexpected treacherous decisions. The pain woman take is unexplainable and her toil is inappreciable.
The author has penned down the trauma and soreness which woman goes through in her stories.
The characters in the stories will show how rude the society is towards the woman and how they treat her when she is in twinge. While reading each story the reader will feel the chills in the spine. The horrifying stories and the disturbing plot will leave the reader in fury.
The pitiful stories of a mother, newly married woman, an aspiring young woman, widowed woman are presented in the book. Read this mind alarming book by Shirani Rajapakse.
