It follows the story of Sati , the goddess as a whole. Her journey as a sister, a wife, a mother..but above all her journey as woman, as the divine feminine whom the Gods wronged, her own father wronged.
This is a book review of Shakti – the divine feminine by Anuja Chandramouli ( a new age writer with recurring themes of women empowerment).
From the time I have read this book, I have become such a fan of it that even after reading it several times , I can still read one more time.
The theme and ethos of this book is absolutely breathtaking and revolutionary.
It follows the story of Sati , the goddess as a whole. Her journey as a sister, a wife, a mother..but above all her journey as woman, as the divine feminine whom the Gods wronged, her own father wronged. She rises up to question every hurdle put in front of her in the name of patriarchy and which is in turn perpetrated by the divine beings she loves (her father Daksha, her husband Lord Shiva).
The book even traces the journey of her relationship with Lord Vishnu as her well wisher.
She angrily questions all the men in her life , all the hypocrisy and threatens to wipe out anyone who caused her the immense suffering she went through.
She blisters through anger, loves with intense passion and does not tolerate betrayal at all.
The book traces her tender love for Lord Ganesh and her complex feelings for Shiva ( ranging from intense anger to tender love to roaring passion)
This book is a must read for every woman . It shows that woman is first a human being. She should not be defined or confined because of her biology. Her body is means to an end just like men.
She is allowed to feel extreme emotions and roaring passions just like any other human. There is no need to cage a woman under the garb of decency and modesty.
She can soar the way she wants to if given a chance.
An absolute delight of a book. A winner of Anuja Chandramouli.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
