Awaken the Durga Within is a handy, easy-to-follow guide to help women assert themselves at home and work and reclaim their life. As women in a patriarchal country like India, they are often held back by family or society; and even education or employment does little to help improve their status.

Bringing in lesser-known and exciting stories about goddesses from Hindu mythology, Awaken the Durga Within puts forward practical solutions that can be implemented immediately, without compromising on values and principles. These stories will help invoke the ‘Shakti’ within every woman so as to transform their minds and transcend their limits. The book helps her Identify the fears holding her back and discover a pithy, three-step process to take control of her life. She is guided on how to make choices that are right for her and experience the rewards. Now it's easy to discover the true spirit of feminism wherein women are given the same rights, power, and opportunities as men.


When I picked this book, I did not expect that I would love this book so much! This book is for all women, married, unmarried and whatever your situation is. A woman is a multi-tasker, she tries to play her roles at home and work properly with the best of her capabilities. But does she gets that appreciation she deserve? No, forget about the appreciation, she is even criticized for wishing to having it all. Women are forced to fit into roles that society has determined for them and are compelled to fit in with society's vision of how they should be. Are you one such woman? We all go through some sort of stress when we feel that despite of applying all our abilities and best of efforts, we are not able to cope with difficult life or difficult people. This book will help us. When women needs help or advice, they don't know where to go and this book is what they need to pick. This book will help you in choosing a meaningful life where you are valued! This will offer suggestions that are bound to make you more confident.

This book offers practical advices that can be easily applied when such situation arises. There are steps given to create a new 'you' or I would say steps to awaken the goddess within you. Some of the steps that I already apply in my life are also mentioned in this book too, which are:
Say 'NO' to people and actions that drain you.
Surround yourself with positive people and relationships that energize you and encourage you to be your best.
Invest in financial health so that you are never a victim, at the mercy of a bully or adverse circumstances.
Safeguard physical health, fueling your body with exercise and healthy food.

And most importantly feed the inner you.

I have awakened the Durga within me!

The cover image is really creative and beautifully designed. The title is apt too.
