Chickpeas to Cook and Other Stories
Chickpeas to Cook is the story of the woman of the tribe, women from some of the smallest of communities, often no more than a few hundred families in Singapore. How do these women live, think, even breathe? What does the Dawoodi Bohra woman answer, for instance, when she’s asked if her daughter will don the ridah after marriage? When does the Sikh woman decide it’s time to come out of her brother’s shadow and live for herself? It’s about ordinary women living ordinary lives, taking ordinary decisions, made extraordinary only by the love, empathy and fortitude they invest into it.
