Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions. Enlarge cover. New Delhi: Women Unlimited. ISBN Reservations for Women comes as a precious source among the main writings dedi- cated to the political position of women in India.

It is the first collection of essays and writings that addresses the issue of affirmative action as a way of increasing the pres- ence of women in the Indian legislative assemblies. Although it could be regarded as a natural symptom of the wider global context of female political locations, Reservations for Women also emphasizes the particularities of the Indian feminist movement. Feminism in India is to be understood differently from Western feminism for many reasons. Firstly, the Indian woman is an epitome of the Indian culture; there- fore, a feminist stance would in fact be equal to a nationalist stance.

Secondly, although mainly patriarchal society with some exceptions , Indian society has reserved a special place for women within culture through religious figures. Lastly, Indian women have defined themselves in harmony with the collective, not in opposition; indeed, in a col- lectively-oriented society such as India, feminism cannot be defined by individualism. Another distinguishing element is that one cannot really speak about female op- pression by men in India.

On the one hand, this is because the Indian religion renders women complementary and equal to man. On the other hand, it was in fact men who initiated several social movements to improve the conditions of women in India e.

Lastly, one could argue the hierarchies among women are even stricter and more oppressive as a result of caste relations. In spite of the above-mentioned challenges, Meena Dhanda, head of Philosophy at the University of Wolverhampton where she has taught since , aims to select the most important writings in the field of Indian political representation of women, without claiming to bring new arguments into light: This is why Dhanda insists that, in a heterogeneous theoretical en- vironment, a selection of the major writings would impose a common framework for discussion.

In the introductory essay, Dhanda explains the place of this book in the Indian tradition: The disagreements now, as then, are about how to bring about the desired change.

The stories are inspiring and the ideals of determination, perseverance, hard work, courage and the excellent business sense of the entrepreneurs described in this book are exemplary and motivating to emulate. From stories of domestic shores to success in USA, the grit and never say die attitude of the Gujarati es penned down gives many valuable business lessons as well as personal and emotional lessons.

The translation is crisp and to the point. Of all the stories and incidents narrated, I liked best the anecdote of "The Circle of Life" revolving around the life and business of Mohanbhai Patel. His fire power personality combined with a intuitive business acumen and tremendous problem solving skills made for a gripping and exciting read! I would say that this a must read business book without the usual jargon s and terms found in majority other business related books and reads.

It is easy to read and a provides a refreshing view on the lives and times of business and their founders with plenty of takeaways to be taken! Jan 11, Gunjan Gupta rated it it was amazing.

There must have been many successful Gujarati businessmen to choose from, but Shobha profiles a select few viz. Jaydev Patel, the New York Life Insurance agent credited with having sold policies worth billions of dollars, diamond wizard Bhimjibhai Patel, motelier Dalpatbhai Patel who got elected as a Mayor in a US county, Mohanbhai Patel, who we must remember every time we squeeze paste from alluminium collapsible tubes, and Hasu and Hersha Shah, owners of over a hundred hotels in the US.

Despite being from fairly conservative backgrounds, and their aversion to meat and liquor, some of these profiled individuals have made their mark in alien lands through consistent labor, often doing double shifts to raise enough capital and taken risks no matter what the odds.

The contribution of their spouses cannot be underestimated and the author must be congratulated on documenting their side of the story as well. Each of the business families written about in this book also gave back a lot to their rural roots in Gujarat, and their generosity and ability to remain rooted to their origins is commendable, especially in the face of powerful ambition.

Two thumbs-up for the the first person narrative structure of the book - it managed to create a far greater empathy with each of the interviewed businessmen. Do check it out. View 1 comment.
