Description

Apradhini is a collection of stories about women who have been incarcerated for life for crimes including armed robbery, dacoity and murder. While guilty of their crimes, the author is astonished to hear the stories leading to these crimes being committed. These women have been beaten, abused and exploited by society, and sadly their attempts to regain some autonomy and liberation brought them to the attention of the law. Are their crimes heartless violations or a response to their untenable circumstances?
