A poignant tale of survival...the book is a detailed study of women who have to negotiate patriarchy and are actively involved in the process of production...an eye-opener; the book fills the vacuum that exists in charting the life of the survivors of suicide.
A multi-layered and nuanced view of the lives of women who have had to deal with a different and specific aspect of the agrarian crisis in Punjab…. The book brings out very succinctly a host of issues…that need to be further researched and debated to evolve a development strategy that will help build an equitable and just society.
A quiet and disturbing book, Those Who Did Not Die by Ranjana Padhi foregrounds the slow and gradual destruction of a life-world, agrarian Punjab, in all its tragic detail. Sustained by a spirit of deep empathy, it captures the hopeless yet poignant dignity of those who have to reckon with and live beyond their loved one’s suicide.
Padhi’s text provides significant details and perspectives to underscore how a fast-capitalising agrarian economy interacts with the structures of caste, patriarchy and gendered inequalities to produce sorrows that are long, deep and devastating...The crux of the study is the account of how women and children suffer and cope in the aftermath of suicides by male heads of households.
The book is an important addition to the ever-increasing body of work addressing women’s issue in holistic manner.
