Existences – A collection of short stories by SHUVASHREE CHOWDHURY
‘Existences’ is the rendering of a young woman’s insights into human existence from the richness of a tapestry of public understanding in her life..

SUBHASHREE CHOWDHURY is the author of five works of literary fiction and the author describes her journey as tough and she has to pave her path in becoming a novelist, poet and short-fiction author.
One cannot say it is women centric, rather it is about people,events and life-experiences, and from the viewpoint of a working woman. Sensitive, analytic and compassionate in their direction and characterization of the nuances of human feelings, these definitions do not aim to question people, rather project on humanitarian grounds, with viable narratives, the acceptance of the oddity of human presence.

4. Have the Women left Venus? Decoding gender @ workplace by Geet Mala Jalota
“Have the Women left Venus? Decoding gender @ workplace” is a research about the women and workplace and why they depart the workplace often. Everybody says domestic reasons or family duties, but my research revealed an unlikely story. If Corporate India has to become a gender inclusive, then it is crucial for Corporate think tanks to understand that women’s needs are different from men – be it salary, work content, be it work conditions, perks, culture, expansion alternatives or motivating them, Unless these statutes are not catered to, women will not stay long and therefore not contribute in a significant way.
