Prabha Khaitan’s story is a moving attempt to write about a life that has been extraordinary. Born into a Marwari family in Calcutta in 1942, Khaitan lived life differently not only as a woman writer, but also as a businesswoman, entrepreneur and activist.

कोलकाता के मारवाड़ी परिवार में पैदा हुई, पढ़ाई-लिखाई और आर्थिक स्वावलंबन का रास्ता अख़्तियार करते हुए हर निजी, पारिवारिक और सामाजिक दायरों को तोड़ती रहीं। उनकी स्मृति में प्रभा खेतान फ़ाउंडेशन साहित्य, कला, शिक्षा और सामाजिक बराबरी के लिए काम कर रहा है।

अजीब इत्तिफ़ाक़ है कि मैं प्रभा खेतान की आत्मकथा ‘अन्या से अनन्या’ मायके से ससुराल की यात्रा के दौरान पढ़ी थी। एक 'दूसरी औरत' का इतना बेबाक, लेकिन इतना संवेदनशील आत्मकथ्य हिन्दी के लिए ही नहीं, किसी भी भाषा के साहित्य के लिए अनूठा है।

is a serious issue. You can't just watch some loafers harassing women. They loafers get emboldened by the indifference we show. High time we must act.

कोई दिन ऐसा न जाता जब मैं अपने इरादे को पूरा करने की योजना न बनाती। क्या-क्या ख्याल आते थे मन में। रणचण्डी बनी उसका संहार कर रही हूँ। कभी गदा, कभी तलवार, कभी बरछी, कभी खड्ग; बचपन में सुनी पौराणिक कहानियों का हर दैवी हथियार, मेरे हाथों, उसका नाश करा चुका था - मृदुला गर्ग, कठगुलाब
