The Heart of a True Woman
James Joycee has rightly said, “Men are governed by lines of intellect- women; by curves of emotion”. If you closely observe a woman, you will notice the number of vivid roles she has to play every day, be it a daughter to her parents, wife to her beloved husband, a sister to her brother, mother to her children; and above all, she has to be a person, a person who wants to live her life with full of dignity and self respect. The Hidden Letters by Purba Chakraborty is one such story of one such woman who endeavored to gain her husband’s love, her daughter’s respect and live a life of dignity by following her dreams. The book conveys meanings that are powerful and touching. The book is about relationships that have to be sustained and nurtured like tender plants. The story is simple, yet it touches a chord. This is a story of a woman where due to circumstances; her life compels her to stand by one role, one character out of all those roles. The Hidden Letters is by far one of the strongest stories told by a woman about a woman. We are always known by the choices we make, we have to support the other person for the choices they make, because everything has a reason behind it.

Amidst all this, The Hidden Letters tells a story where a woman finally decides to reveal the biggest secret of her life by surrendering to her husband and daughter, The Hidden Letters. Read on to find more about the hidden secret behind the hidden letters, about the womanhood. The author has created a story which is riveting and enthralling and yet so simplistically told.
