About The Book Touch The Sky –
It is an inspiring short stories collection book written on Indian women Touch The Sky by Rashmi Bansal is a must read for all women seeking for some inspiration (Book Review )ho shared their personal life success stories. The book mainly revolves around three things –
- Ziddi – Do not be stubborn, parents tell their daughters. But every new idea, big idea, good idea has come into being because of unshakeable belief.
- Besharam – (There is no good English term for the word ‘sharram’ oe ‘besharam’) ‘ Be modest’ – this is what girls are told so that they stay where they are. So be Bold, think big, move ahead…others will follow.
- Bindaas – A bindaas girl is one who is considred “cool”. But Bindaas isn’t about wearing cool clothes or speaking with an accent, it’s a state of mind, an attitude.
I read the book within a day because the stories were so powerful that I wanted to read more and more about such courageous women. I am sharing here my favorite quotes from the book and also thanking the author for writing the book and requesting the publisher to bring many more such good books to a readers life.
to The Author – keep writing such powerful books. Loved reading the spirit of all women be it Bikerni, Pizza Granny, Mahila Sarpanch, football craze or weight loose diaries.
” Ladkiya ek baar jo soch le karne ki phir unko koi bhi musibat nahin rok sati he”
And in all the stories I noticed that one thing that If the family supoorts than life become easy warna support na mile to bhi hamari Ziddi, beshram aur bindaas ladkiyo ko apni manzil pane se koi nahin rok sakta he aur safal hone ke baad toh sab sath dene lagte hain
