Despite a brief and slender literary career, Rashid Jahan blazed like a meteor in the progressive firmament of pre- and post-independence India. Doctor, writer, political activist, crusading member of the Communist Party of India, Rashid Jahan was radical in a way that defied all expectations—from her social class, her comrades, her peers and colleagues.

In a remarkably perceptive, richly detailed account of this pioneering woman, Rakhshanda Jalil offers readers an unusual document: a warm and informed biography—based on archival material, extensive interviews and critical commentaries—together with fine translations of Rashid Jahan’s best known stories and plays.
