About the Author

Anway Mukhopadhyay is Assistant Professor at the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India. 


“The author writes in a lucid and yet sophisticated style and while the book is a must-read for scholars of Religious Studies (especially Hindu Studies) and Gender Studies, it will also benefit students/scholars of Women Studies, Comparative Religion and Postcolonial Studies. I would further insist that the book can be enjoyed even by ‘lay’ readers since it is a repository of beautiful mythological stories.” (Madhurima Nayak, Journal of Dharma Studies, April 12, 2022)
