The Curse of Damini, a romantic thriller novel, authored by Debjani Mohanty was released here on Saturday.
The theme of the novel revolves around a woman’s journey to chart her destiny in a harsh and male-dominated world.
The story explores relevant and topical issues like violence and discrimination against women through the experiences of Renuka Pai, a young woman who embarks on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
Renuka’s journey from a rash teenage freedom fighter to a celebrated writer of the 21st century has been depicted in the novel.
Debjani said the fear of sexual and mental harassment at workplace or during travel prevents even highly educated women to take up a career.
“Financial independence of women can not only empower women significantly but also bring about a social change,” she added. Jnanpith Award winner Pratibha Ray released the novel on the occasion. Among others, MLA Priyadarshi Mishra and Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax, Government of India, Priyadarshi Mishra were present.
