While containing a few strong stories, Nighat Gandhi’s uneven collection does not push the boundaries of the literary tradition. In this last aspect, the women in Waiting are different from the eight real-life women of Gandhi’s non-fiction book, What I Am Today, I Won’t Remain Tomorrow: Conversations With Survivors Of Abuse (2010) who had actively left their abusive situations and created new, independent lives. Of these 13 stories, a majority could be described as mood pieces, vignettes, or portraits versus plot-driven stories. Gandhi presents inner lives through mostly interior monologues or lengthy dialogues.

I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill

You'll find lines on love, life, death, peace, nature, education, leadership, religion (with great images). What is true of the individual will be tomorrow true of the whole nation if individuals will but refuse to lose heart and hope. Unwearied ceaseless effort is the price that must be paid for turning faith into a rich infallible experience. Infinite striving to be the best is man’s duty; it is its own reward. I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill. The rich cannot accumulate wealth without the co-operation of the poor in society.

Those hurtful and violent incidents remain fresh in the background as.I lived a life of abuse. So I smiled brightly and held silly conversations with my teddy bears and even the floor.

Those hurtful and violent incidents remain fresh in the background as motivation to be careful in our relationships and to monitor current interactions so that fresh wounds do not open. I am open with lots of people, but with those who have been cruel or violent to me as a child, I have rules. Even after I was married, my adopted parents, especially my adopted mother, would go out of her way to cause me pain. I cannot count all the ways she would threaten me, degrade me, intimidate me, and hurt me and my family.

In conversation with eight women who survived lives of abuse, nighat m gandhi draws attention to the unexpected fact that despite years of suffering, many abuse survivors can and do live enhanced lives and experience personal growth once these eight women find the sources of help which enable them to leave the abusive situations they are in, there are significant changes in the women's thoughts, beliefs, and behaviour with respect to gender-based violence refreshingly, these eight women are unanimous in their refusal to return to their previously abusive families they value their newfound independence much more than their previously socially-approved, limiting roles and duties as wives, daughters-in-law and daughters most of them report a greater degree of satisfaction and well-being with the new lives they have built nighat reflects upon her own 'privileged' status as an educated middle-class woman living in a small town in north india as she records these poignant and empowering encounters with valiant women who confirm that women are thriving and discovering the joys of building new lives when old ones have let them down
