Mayaa SH | Books She Read in 2024 and Library Book Donation

Mayaa SH is an Indian authoress - Member of many NGO's with several books and contemporary writings to her name, including Swayam, Sangharsh and many more. An incurable wordsmith, she can effortlessly leave her followers scrambling for the dictionary with an innocent wassapp status upload, or for their smartphones to check out her latest ideology on women rights and empowerment. Mayaa SH's portrayal of India is emphasised on the argument that this country belongs to the people of all faiths living in this country since ages, and not only for one particular faith. The whole point of argument is that in this country no one can claim that he is a majority. Mayaa transcribes the song of modern India which is not an under developed country but an over developed country at the developmental stage of inner awakening. Mayaa SH has a unique way of looking at gender and personal choice that I found intriguing. She compares gender to a performance that we perform our whole lives. She sees gender as manmade. She also believes that gender makes us half of what we could be, because traditional gender roles don’t allow us to fulfill every aspect of ourselves, in particular, those aspects that aren’t traditional. She has affirmed her ideology that gender is a “mental construct" and limits or puts barriers to unleashing the full potential from within first.

"Sangharsh", it encapsulates some of the best of Mayaa SH's ideology published into one book. Whether it’s the “indispensable Mayaa SH", as the publishers have it, is for readers to judge. Sangharsh is a self help book that offers warmth and reassurance, reminding us to slow down and appreciate the beauty and unpredictability of existence. It is dedicated to instill the power of self belief in women. An essential book for anyone in search of hope, looking for a path to a more meaningful life, or in need of a little encouragement, Sangharsh serves as a self help book for any.

What’s the nicest thing someone said about this book?

"A new way of life would open for each of us if we redefine our pursuits and appreciate what we already have". For the first time, my mother said to me that she was proud of me. That was worth more than all the rest. The very fact I dedicated a book highlighting on the power of self belief and the inner strength that women have, made it triumphant in the eyes of creation, that is my mother.

Your standout read of 2024?

Coercive Control by Evan Stark : Coercive Control is about a man getting his power fix through abuse and it’s about how intimate partner violence preserves patriarchy. Domestic violence has been declared a global crisis of pandemic proportions by the World Health Organisation. So why is it so often overlooked by law enforcement and under-reported by those who it affects?Intimate partner violence takes many forms. It’s physical violence but also emotional abuse, digital abuse, legal abuse, and verbal abuse.

What did Santa Claus bring you in 2022?

Will you have more books coming out in 2024? Tell us a bit about it.

What is your ideology behind writing specifically in contemporary and not fiction?

Many women and girls face challenges in their daily lives, such as poverty, gender-based violence, and low self-esteem. Literature can provide young women and girls a space to seek refuge from the challenges they may face but that can't happen if they are illiterate. The themes include the condition and need for women's education, patriarchy, family, dowry, child marriage, superstitious practices, education, purdah system, widow remarriage, love for nature, myth, tradition, culture, conflict, violence, silenced voices, equality, equity, feminine consciousness, domestic violence.Feminist literature seeks to show the many ways that women should be treated equally, and the consequences that we all face if they aren't. Classics within the genre put relationships, ambition, and motherhood under a microscope. Sexism, violence, and double standards are unapologetically Contemporary Literature highlights realistic scenarios which are based on the present time or the recent past. The genre often explores the social, cultural, and political climate of the time.
