Abstract"From being a young Bengali girl, to Sumana s later life in Calcutta, India, The Flowing River is a factually based novel that relays a vivid account of a girl's will and determination to succeed. Set in a world that delivers few rights for women, it follows her struggle as she questions a conservative and uncompromising society. As she endeavours to educate herself and strive for a way forward in life, she must endure the torment and hardship of her female status, whilst maintaining her will to move towards a more rewarding future. Manju Chaudhuri delivers a novel on her own experiences of life in two worlds, East and West and woman s struggle to succeed against all odds. Her words will engage the reader with tales of sorrow and determination, from the life of a young girl to an educated and dignified woman, The Flowing River is a gripping and inspirational tale that will captivate the reader."--Publisher's note.

Includes an account of the author's experiences in Tower Hamlets.
