In this second collection of real-life inspired short stories, I was once again completely drawn in Dr. Barthakur’s literary world. ‘Picking up the Threads’ takes you on a very captivating journey of growing up. You see a typical Indian family and society in the 1950’s, through the eyes of a young, educated, ambitious girl – a rarity in those days! It is a most engrossing page-turner. This collection of poignant tales will leave their emotional marks on you. ‘TB Partients and the Pigs’ and “Disappearing Trick’ will tear your heart strings, while you will be uplifted in ‘The Moving Head’ and ‘Fooling with Death’. You will come to laugh in ‘Not to be: The Movie’! Dr. Barthakur has a wonderful storytelling gift. I cannot wait for the next book!

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.
