1 Shevantibai Nikambe, Edited By Chandani Lokuge
Ratanbai: A High-Caste Child-Wife
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 019566311X / 9780195663112; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Ratanbai traces the poignant life story of a Marathi Brahmin girl from early childhood, through to child-marriage and into maturity. As the daughter of a westernized lawyer father and a deeply traditional mother, young Ratanbai is caught in the grips of the East-West encounter within the precincts of her own home. The novel serves as a socio-historic document offering insights into the domestic routine and distinctive familial and religious customs of Marathi Brahmin women in late nineteenth-century Bombay, as well as a feminist text about the intellectual and emotional awakening of its female protagonist. Intimate and moving, Ratanbai includes eloquent photographs of child-wives which tell a narrative of their own. Very little is known about the author, Shevantibai Nikambe, except that she was the Head of a school for young wives, widows, and grown-up girls from the high-caste Hindu community. This novel is a rare contribution to Indian fiction written in English, and to wom en s studies. Printed Pages: 148. 001055
