#Review: Rising by Kiran Manral
Author: Kiran Manral
Publisher: Rupa Publications
Rising is a collection of anecdotal evidence that has been cherry-picked from the lives of some of the most sought-after women who have shaped the world. Each story talks about the struggle that played cupid in uniting the titular person with their hobby/passion. As the author mentions, it would have been extremely difficult to select the relevant information and fit it on the designated pages yet the outcome is so inspiring. Whether it is about Mary Kom, Shakuntala Devi, Madhuri Dixit or Maharani Gayatri Devi and Harita Kaur Deol, this book takes you through some of the most inspiring stories that aim at instilling the confidence to dream and to pursue what you like doing.
A simple yet evocative narrative helps in bringing together the strengths and struggles of 30 inspiring women. Rising, as the name suggests, is worth reading because it gives a glimpse of how strong women are or can be. The only reason I didn’t enjoy Rising is because there’s no novelty in the idea. There are several books on the same theme.
Best wishes to the author!
