The next post on this blog is by a Friend of Prajnya, Dr. Swati Parashar, who writes about her mother. What is special about this post is that Swati took the time to call and interview her mother and learn about her life. She heard some things she knew and some things she didn’t. With Swati’s permission, I am cross-posting in this blog with a link to the original blog.
The reason we really appreciate this, is that this is the kind of work we want to promote. We want people to ask in their families and listen to stories that are now being forgotten. Every life is remarkable and every person has a story. But most stories are forgotten, especially the stories that women would have to tell.
If you have stories from the women in your family, let us know, and we can discuss the possibility of your recording them via this blog.
Swati’s post follows next.
