The legend of Lakshmi Prasad

 

Book Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Funny, sharp and moving Twinkle Khanna shifts from her celebrity status and page 3 background to talk about real issues and real people across country. I admire her writing which picks up real stories of people who are making change where it matters. I hope her writing goes places. In her simple English and sassy style she remarks on the taboos and stereotypes that exist in today's world. 

The short stories are short and sweet but they leave you with a warm feeling of goodness. There is so much that we can do from the comfort of our homes. We can treat our help staff better, we can stop criticising and putting other people in boxes of knowing English and faking accents, we can stop assuming that marriage and children is the only purpose women exist, and we can stop shying away from women hygiene issues which plagues million women in our own country. We can start the change which we wish in others. 

In her own words, some education and some humour - 

Job, where people try to do as little as they can for as long as they can.

Women empowerment, where improving a woman's economics status improves her entire family's condition. 

Education, being uneducated does not mean you are an idiot. idiots think that because something is complicated, it is superior, whereas an intelligent man takes a complicated thing and makes it simple. 

Women have been looking for a cape and have been handed an apron for centuries.
