Description

This intimate autobiography, rich in details of a society in transition, was written by one of Indias earliest women doctors. Though a child widow, driven from pillar to post, Haimabati nourished an ambition for higher education, eventually trained as a medical practitioner, and became the ?Lady Doctor in charge of Hughli Dufferin Hospital... for Women. Haimabatis memoir illustrates the predicament of a woman determined to earn an honourable living in a mans world. This extraordinary account, the longest and most detailed memoir yet discovered by an Indian woman born in the nineteenth century, was originally written in lined school notebooks in Haimabatis native language, Bengali.
