Kagajma Dastakhat is a book with a collection of eight short stories. The stories depict women’s sentiments, feelings, their social obligations and limitations, and how they are discriminated by society in the name of culture, and social norms and values. A young girl is being sexually harassed but her parents don’t bother to find out the problem, a woman is trying to find a way of self-existence in society but her own relatives hinder her goals, an educated woman is married to a drunken husband, and an old woman is neglected by her own son for whom she has dedicated her entire life – the characters in the stories not only represent society as it is, but they are living among us. The reality of the plight of women in our society has been put into words.
