    In a culture described as 'punctuated by question marks', what is the role of women?
    Is she a meal ticket? A punching bag? A caretaker for old parents, offspring etc.? A business deal maker? The working partner ? The third wheel?
    Or a person in her own right—holding on to her space, her identity while countering intimidation?
    Kusum Choppra's hitherto untold stories, tongue-in-cheek or serious, offer insights into the functioning of women's minds:
    Of different approaches to life after a divorce;
    Of the greedy exploitation of the widows of Kargil's martyrs;
    Of a sister fighting for inheritance to protect her mother from
    her brother;
    Of a burnt bride fighting her way back—to life and emotional
    Of a simple village woman protecting her aged in-laws from the
    greed of her husband and his new wife;
    Of widows grasping at their slices of life. And why not?
    Of a challenge to Pati Parmeshwar's right to select surrogates!
    The stories are of women surviving their ordeals to move on in life.
