Smashing Patriarchy One story at a time!

As a creative individual Vikky has spent many years in Advertising, Publishing, and Media.’ Light’ – is her first book, written during the lockdown, where facts of our patriarchal society provoked her to think and re-examine her perception of reality. This eBook will surprise readers with the depth of truth packed in it. In just six short stories, using mundane events as a backdrop, she lightly skips through multiple heavy themes—child abuse, feminism, sexuality, social constructs, and patriarchy—thus demonstrating their intersectionality, the breadth of their impact, and the terrible consequences of the denial of basic rights to women in India.

As I promote my first authored book under an alias, the challenge of wanting to be heard and not seen is a constant reminder of my stepping into a unique way of expressing myself creating a new persona hoping to be reborn in the new decade.

Personal integrity is not compromised as I show up for myself, a step-by-step process of a new vision that I wish to make to change in society, to open up new conversations on old topics which have not yet resolved themselves.

The title description – Thoda Sach, Thodi Kahaniyan is well justified

An honestly brutal book can change social structure or at least make a dent in it! Recollecting an interesting incident during her journey in writing the book is a ‘stream of consciousness’ as words and sentences seemed to tumble from an unknown source weaving the narratives in a sea of tumultuous rage. 

As a woman, I have over the years gathered many incidences around other women. Some left me intrigued and some simply shocked me. As we move into the 21st century it’s time I think to start a dialogue around these difficult subjects, if not change society…at least make a dent in it! Women readers are heavily impacted by ‘Light’ as they can see a reflection of truth and society in the many narratives.

Vikky is now in the process of collaborating with an OTT platform and creative collaborators so her stories can reach a larger audience. Her dream team is to collaborate with women directors/actors who share the common vision of storytelling where various issues facing our society are handled with courage, creativity, and empathy.

And the title description – Thoda Sach, Thodi Kahaniyan is well justified.
