About This Book
    Spread the love

    This book Stories of Resilience, brings to life stories of badly wounded world of children, who ultimately offer an incredible message of
    encouragement and hope to all readers. Children who have healed themselves and one another from the deepest personal injuries of child
    rapes, sexual violence, child marriage, intergenerational poverty and patriarchy. Protsahan’s dear friend and renowned author, Ramendra Kumar
    says, “I got slender threads of fact, from the Founder of Protsahan, around which I had to weave tales of fiction that would showcase the resilience
    of the Protsahan girls in the face of almost impossible odds. The brief given to me was to tell stories which would epitomise the spirit but not reveal
    the persona of the girls in the remotest way. It was a tough task, possibly one of the most challenging ones I have ever undertaken. The book is my
    tribute to the girls of Protsahan – the angels who are ready to fly despite the broken wings, smothered hopes and smudged dreams…”
    As director and founder of Protsahan India Foundation, working against child abuse in every form, Sonal Kapoor, has borne witness to the
    devastating consequences of the most unspeakable acts of violence against children in the past decade of her work at grassroots for India’s
    most vulnerable children and girls. Furthermore, she has seen firsthand how victims of inhumanity have found the inner strength to overcome lifealtering
    trauma with renewed faith and have even regained humor and optimism at Protsahan. Book’s author, Ramendra over long interview
    based research with the Protsahan team, has beautifully, subtly and intricately described selfhealing
    in children in an ambience of love and
    through trauma informed compassionate care model of Protsahan. He includes the importance of verbalizing and owning one’s own story and
    the importance of faith, as he writes from the wisdom of his experience not only as a writer as much as a believer for those children and adults on
    the path to healing. His empowering message is that the invisible wounds left by violence are not intractable, that people can and will persevere.
    He offers a handful of real life stories that transformed forever through Protsahan’s deep work with children within India’s slums. This passionately
    written book contains many moving stories of children and adolescent girls, of recovery from trauma. This book has also been recommended for
    academic and specialized collections in mental health and counseling through an extremely simple storytelling approach.

    This book will change forever, how you view children from difficult circumstances. It will teach you, they are not ‘underprivileged’ as most of the
    world likes to call them, instead, they are truly, ‘resilient’.
