Why the path of life is so zigzagged and thorny for someone born as a woman? This is a true autobiography which gives us the experience of `truth is stranger than fiction`. This autobiography is unique as it is not written by anyone who is famous or who is somebody somewhere. It is the story of a common woman, born in a normal family. But her life after the death of her husband became hell for her. She had to face many dreadful facts. She had to keep her house running and had to struggle for the survival of her children. She had to accept prostitution to earn enough money to keep her and her children`s living going. She had to accept the life-style beyond the moral norms, virtues, and culture. No wonder, her words, which are full of truth; leave us spellbound.
