There are some books which are all about inspiring people and if I have to list 10 books which have inspired me so far, Because I am a girl will definitely be a part of it. Came with a very strong recommendation, I decided to pick this book when I felt life was not being fair to me and after finishing this book I realised my life was being extremely kind to me. There are so many people who are living an extremely tough life where they have no control over things happening to them, but still they gathered all their courage, fought against every adversity of life and came out victorious.
Because I am a girl is about seven such women. The introduction of the book says “Perhaps there is no greater sense of triumph than the one achieved by a disadvantaged individual through an intense struggle for her dignity and livelihood against a hostile social and economic background” which has been written by Govind Nihalni and I couldnt agree more.
Prominent names from the literary and entertainment world like Anjum Hasan, Shahana Goswami, Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan, Pooja Bedi, Aditi Rao Hyadri, Namrita Bachchan and Nafisa Ali Sodhi have written one story each about a girl who in spite of everything going against her, turned things around and made a good life and an identity for herself.
I would not like to delve deeper into the details of the book as I believe that it would dilute the essence of the book if I said anything more about it. Pick this book up to inspire yourself and understand a very important fact of life, life is never easy, its you who has to make it easy and the key to it is, work towards it.
