Expected to serve her employers' every grueling demand, Halder faced a staggering workload that often left her no time to care for her own children.
The young woman's luck finally turned when she started working for Prabodh Kumar, a retired anthropology professor who noticed Halder's interest in his library. Kumar helped her to read his books and newspapers--which she devoured enthusiastically--then suggested that she write down her own life story. In "A Life Less Ordinary," the fascinating result of her writing sessions with Kumar, Halder speaks for a multitude of Indian women, revealing a world of poverty and subjugation few outsiders have heard about. Halder writes simply and candidly of her life as a young girl, and later as a struggling mother.
Without a trace of melodrama or self-pity, she describes her experiences of growing up poor and neglected, struggling to manage children and a violent husband while she herself was only fourteen years old, and, finally, of escaping her past ultimately to triumph as a writer.
Already a huge success in India, where it has been published in Hindi, Bengali, and several other languages, "A Life Less Ordinary" is an astonishing story of strength, courage, and determination that continues to inspire readers everywhere.
