Ma is Scared by Anjali Kajal

Ma is Scared by Anjali Kajal

An anxious mother waits for her daughter to return from work while deflecting comments from judgmental neighbours. A chance encounter with an old college friend triggers the memory of a cruel trap once set for a young student, just because of her caste. In the middle of a lecture on the legacies of sexual abuse, a woman feels the weight of a whole lifetime suddenly pressing down on her.

The stories in Anjali Kajal’s debut collection draw us into the lives of ordinary women in Northern India, making us realize quite how rarely we witness these experiences from Dalit points of view.

Whether combating the caste-based disdain of colleagues at work or in the classroom or enduring the new blows that the pandemic landed on Dalit communities, Anjali’s characters find resilience and a
dignity that we can all learn from.
