About the Book
book is about women who even after years of the disappearance of their husbands,
sons and fathers are still on a daily search for their loved ones while trying
to discover their own identity ó are they widows or not widows.
Apart from economic hardships, they have been alienated by family, society and
Documenting their mental agony and trauma was never an easy task. This book
compiles their tragedies in order to give a voice to the voiceless. Courts have
failed them, successive governments have brushed aside their suffering, society
has adopted an indifferent attitude and there are those who earn out of the
indigence of these women.
