In Dr. Barthakur’s seventh collection of real-life inspired short stories, you are especially exposed to raw human emotions. The stories showcase the human spirit at its worst in ‘Confession’ and ‘Emergency days’ and in stark contrast, its best in ‘Matter of Faith’ and ‘He Faced It’. Even tales from the animal kingdom about their spirit and fundamental urges are also included – ‘Interrupted’ and ‘Scratchy Tickles are a most enjoyable read. The idea ‘Stones on the Road’ and ‘Matter of Faith’ shows that just one person is all it takes to make real difference. Furthermore, descriptions of the beauty and magic, which comes from embracing change, will completely overwhelm and captivate you in story ‘Magic and Medicine’ and the ‘Matter of Faith’.

Dr. I. K. Barthakur is well-known for her deep interest in economic development. In diverse fields, she has contributed invaluable original thought. This is also visible in her other books including several editions relating to a major scientific discovery which naturally enables the parents to conceive the desired gender of a baby at conception.

She received the prestigious national awards of ‘Padma Bhushan’ in 2009, ‘Padma Shree’ in 1992 – both from the President of India. As a student, she had received ‘Silver Medal’ for bravery. She received the ‘Mahila Shiromani Award’in 1989; ‘International Woman Award’ in 1992, ‘Bharat Jyoti Award’ in 2008; Indira Priyadarshini Award in 2011. These awards reflect her deep personal involvement and contributions she had made beyond the call of her duty.
