Resurrection: A Woman Reborn

Nitu . (Author) Shovana Narayan (Foroward)

This is the Chinese translation of an anthology of poems on woman originally written in English. This is the story of an everyday woman who we see around us every now and then. This is a short collection of thoughts of women who build lives around the husband and his wishes. This is done willingly and happily. In fact this gives her immense satisfaction. She is so busy building a family and dreaming of a home that she'll one day spend her old age in, that she misses the warning signals and ignores her own intuitive feeling. Her family, her home, that's her existence and she revels in it. And then, suddenly, unexpectedly, she's told she's no longer needed. The reasons given vary but are unimportant. The effect is the same, he walks away and she keels over. Caught unawares at crossroads she gasps and sputters. This is when she realises that she has to go on. There are obligations she must fulfil and tasks she must complete. Her family and friends rally around her and then, like a true warrior, she battles the demons inside and around her. She looks up to find new horizons and at daybreak she promises herself a new rainbow. And this rainbow is hers alone.

About the author

Shovana Narayan

Shovana Narayan is one of the outstanding classical dancers of India. For her incomparable contribution to the Kathak style of classical dance, she has been decorated with several awards, including Government of India's coveted Padmashri and Sangeet Natak Akademi awards. She has bestowed Kathak with dignity and enriched it with a deeper and wider canvas of expression and dimensions. She is at once, an explorer, a performer, a choreographer and an artiste par excellence, with values and a cause. The explorer and researcher within her have seen her author six books on Indian dance, which bespeak of intensity, depth and gravity. She has also worked closely with nationally and internationally acclaimed Indian and western dancers and musicians from various streams of art. Shovana's palette contains other media, including films and operas as well as being a dedicated guru whose disciples are creating their niche in the world of Kathak that once again bears testimony to the intensive training being imparted by her. She is also a senior serving civil servant belonging to the Indian Audits and Accounts Service (1976 batch). Married to Dr. Herbert Traxl, Austrian Ambassador, the two have a son, Erwin Ishan Traxl. Her younger sister, Ranjana Narayan, is a lawyer and a classical singer.
