Synopsis

Unveiled- Synopsis

"Unveiled" is a compilation of short stories that portray the pain of being a girl- from the womb to the tomb. This book is also a compilation of the author’s portrayal of the sufferings of the Indian girls and women which she has seen firsthand. Moreover, she herself has been through the fires of gender discrimination. Each of the stories in the book is about girls and women she personally knows or knows about. Therefore, each story is real. It is true. This is reality for women in India.

This is the author’s personal testimony to the question she asked of God at an early age, “Why did you make me a girl?” Shaw believes that Christ alone has the power to heal the wounds given to the Indian women and has experienced healing herself in Him. She now believes it is her calling to be a voice for the numerous voiceless girls and women.

She believes that the words of Jesus to Mary of Magdala, “Woman, why are you weeping ? Whom are you seeking?” span across centuries and nationalities. This book is a source for comfort, healing and miraculous interventions for women.
