This fascinating book, based on Atreyee Sen's immersion in the low-income, working class slums of Bombay, tells the story of the women and children of the Hindu right wing party, the Shiv Sena, in Western India. The women's front of the Sena, known as the "Mahila Aghadi", has been instrumental in creating and sustaining communal violence, and the infamous Hindu-Muslim riots in Bombay(1992-3) brought them into the limelight.
