Product Description

Pooja Pande is a writer, editor and TED speaker who heads strategy at Khabar Lahariya. She led First City as editor through the 2000s, and is the co-author of Red Lipstick, with Laxmi Narayan Tripathi. Pande's writing has appeared in various publications, including in the Wire, Firstpost, VICE, the Ladies Finger, Himal Southasian, and a short story in If Mom's Happy, an erotica anthology featuring mums. With Momspeak, she has finally come to terms with her mother-writer self, and is now looking forward to birthing many more book-babies.

Mother. Woman. Human.

What is it like to be a mother in India? Is there only one kind of woman as mother or can mothers be as different as chalk and cheese?

In this original, provocative book, Pooja Pande peels off the layers of social propriety to delve deep into the visceral reality of motherhood, much glorified but barely understood in India. Exploring the spectrum of experiences mothers have as women, as humans-from ecstasy to depression, jealous possessiveness to indifference, exhaustion to sensual desire-she reveals the personal, social and emotional roller-coaster motherhood can be. Through vignettes of her personal journey, and hilarious and poignant episodes in the lives of different mothers-married, divorced, single, queer, adoptive-Pande celebrates and shines new light on this transformative, life-affirming experience. Whatever kind of mother you are, you will find your truth reflected in these pages.

Covering a wide spectrum of mothers...she discusses the trials and tribulations of being a mother, and why this often, eulogised figure in popular culture is just as human as anybody else.Effortless writing, and disarming sense of humourPooja Pande wonders why Indian society is respectful towards women in their role as mothers but ignores their minds, desires, and sexuality.Funny, witty and livelyI highly recommend this book to all mothers, everywhereRelatable, uplifting and packs some really heavy punches in kid glovesWell written, witty and incredibly readableI found me in several chapters of this bookParadoxically demonstrates why humans have always tended to celebrate motherhood
