Set in contemporary India, Sangeeta Mulay’s unforgettable debut novel is a compelling saga of love, religion and courage. Aparna Soman is an anti-superstition campaigner, promoting rationality under the patriarchal grip of a Hindu nationalist government and a religious society, which seeks to silence her. Hari Sabnis is the passionate founder of religious organisation Dharma Sanstha, with an ambitious goal – converting India from secular to Hindu nation. From its inception, his flood relief and volunteer work is a force for good. But as Hari becomes a rising star for the local religious right-wing, will he lose himself? Parallel lives; parallel beliefs: DISOBEDIENT WOMEN tells the interwoven stories of two families and their battle of ideologies. It is a novel of the choices women make under pressure, where to be disobedient is the only life choice that offers change.
