Extraordinary . . . Chup should be the springboard for Indian women to introspect and break the silence around gender inequality. Conducted across colleges, in coffee shops and in shopping malls in the major Indian cities of New Delhi, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Mumbai, Narayan . . . delve[d] into the "inner lives" of urban women. It revealed that India s young, educated, modern women still encounter widespread gender inequality, and often internalize conservative attitudes toward women s social roles. Washington Post Through shocking and often saddening and relatable interviews, Narayan writes about how women are almost "trained" to be invisible, in a world that s afraid of their body, their sexuality, their voice, and their identity. It s the perfectly unsettling read that patriarchal India deserves. Youth Ki Awaaz
