Also some descriptions felt a little dragged. Overall it's a good emotional story. Give it a go!

Susan who was a Bengali young girl, eldest in her family was growing nicely.She wasn't an extraordinary girl, but she started to observe the behavior of society from her school days.After the death of her father who was professor at NIT,Rourkela, the situation of her family suddenly changed and her mother had to do a clerk job in the same Campus. The behavior of her mother also changed towards her and siblings, after this tragedy. And from here Susan's journey to become Indomitable Susan started. And then she fall in love with Sanjay and after their affair, they decided to make a register marriage. Without noticing her mother she went with Sanjay hoping there good and prosperous life,but who knows the Destiny. A few days later her mother came and got angry by her decision. Her mother abandoned her and her siblings also supported mother. Then she got infected with HIV by Sanjay . Sanjay didn't spend much time with her,but he gifted HIV to Susan rather than good life and happiness. Now, she had a daughter Andria and she wanted to give her a good life unlike her mother. To know how Susan take this responsibility,you have to read this book. Susan was the embodiment of a caring mother.This represents a picture of woman empowerment and gender biased opinions of society. This also taught us how HIV can make our lives worse if we don't take precautions. I liked the theme of the book,because it talks on a very important topic HIV. It's definitely a good book. Book has been written in lucid style and could be a bit short on description of Susan's early life and her griefs. Recommend for those who wants to read the odyssey of a Mother to give her daughter a bright future.

    Not only title but also the cover is so freaking appropriate for this story. And most importantly I am really impressed with the basis of the story. Susan is the fighter of our story who is legit “Indomitable”. From a very young age she is facing these serious mental traumas. First she loses her father who is her hero and eventually she also loses her best friend. But she hasn’t given up in front of life and came back prepared for the future ahead. She finds her happiness in a guy named Sanjay a Not only title but also the cover is so freaking appropriate for this story. And most importantly I am really impressed with the basis of the story. Susan is the fighter of our story who is legit “Indomitable”. From a very young age she is facing these serious mental traumas. First she loses her father who is her hero and eventually she also loses her best friend. But she hasn’t given up in front of life and came back prepared for the future ahead. She finds her happiness in a guy named Sanjay and they get married. But life doesn’t stop playing harsh with her and she faces some even worse issues when she finds out both of them are suffering from HIV. How she confronts the hostility is the whole point of the story which turns out to be really moving. I liked the motherhood which was shown in this story the most. The way Susan tried to keep her child’s future secured was highly touching. On the other hand the condition of Indian women in our society was prevalent in the narration. But the important thing was how Susan stopped nowhere and fought for her rights all along. It’s really miserable how even in twentieth century people are carrying such mentality towards women. Moreover how the HIV patients get treated in our country is clear in the story. There was so much to appreciate in the story- from dealing with personal issues to dealing with society for being a little different from the crowd everything receives my admiration. But the whole story being narrated in third person point of view killed the vibe of the story. It really could have been made much livelier if there were some thoughts of the protagonist or dialogues they were exchanging. I was really sad rating it a three star because the story actually carried lots of potential. I am encouraging such stories which create awareness socially and help the society reforming. Recommending this story to everyone to gather courage to counteract the truth the society is hiding behind its polished face.

Her good time came to an end with the tragic death of her father. During the prime of youth, she had to leave her studies and had to face ruthless insult from her crooked father-in-law. Susan had to absorb all the tantrums of her schizophrenic, depressed, and HIV infected husband Sanjay. And still her love and affection was not changed over that. The way author has portrayed Susan's character is incredible. As author states, She can be compared with the sun, which never sets. She fought till the end for giving shape to the career of her daughter in spite of all odds. Her character defined the true meaning of women’s empowerment and women’s liberty. In this book, the author has talked about how mental disorder is still a taboo in our society. The book also focuses on how husband must not be a liability. For a woman, making a good career is as important as it is for a man! It states the importance of financial independence. The central theme of the book is very impressive. The chapters are aligned in a very proper way. The story is depicted in lucid manner. So to conclude, it is the tale of struggle, boldness, admiration, determination and sacrifices of an Indian homemaker which I would recommend to readers of all ages.

    The title and the cover of the book is what attracted my attention for the first time. The theme, as relevant from the title, seemed to be very critical and important. The story is of Susan. She was a very happy child untill a disaster takes place in her life, when she loses her father. Losing her father at such a young age, made her mentally very weak. Sadly, she also loses her best friend soon. This broke her down completely. But, she was a strong girl, so she revived back interest in her life The title and the cover of the book is what attracted my attention for the first time. The theme, as relevant from the title, seemed to be very critical and important. The story is of Susan. She was a very happy child untill a disaster takes place in her life, when she loses her father. Losing her father at such a young age, made her mentally very weak. Sadly, she also loses her best friend soon. This broke her down completely. But, she was a strong girl, so she revived back interest in her life. She went on with her education and became a successful person. She married Sanjay, a nice and a humble man. Life was looking very good for them, when another shock comes to their lives. They both are diagnised as HIV positive. This was very unfortunate and the couple found it unbearable. Susan, tried to be strong and she finally fought back. Inspite of HIV, she gets a child, and the book is the story of how she raises her child, in the best way she could. She gave whatever she had, for the betterment of her child. This story teaches us that one should never give up on life, however hard the situation might be. The story is very relevant to the current society, where HIV patients are treated in a very bad way, and they are kind of isolated from the normal lifestyle. The book highlights the fight a HIV patient has to face in life. I'm very impressed by the author's effort in putting up this topic through his book. The book touched me to the core.

A father-centric child, Susan lost her father at an early age and was struck down with massive poverty and a gender-biased mother. She fell in love with Sanjay, and as a by-product of an unconsummated marriage, continued to face infinite hurdles. A prey to diplomatic relations at her in-laws, a psychologically unfit husband and financial stringency, the challenges faced by her continued to multiply in folds. The story meanders through Susan's life as a daughter, a wife and in-law's relations to finally a mother and a widow. Her husband was afflicted with bipolar disorder, mental anxiety and other syndromes until HIV was detected in his medical reports. The character of Susan is that of an untethered woman, hunted down by ill-fate, and peeks a glimpse of a strong personality which takes her up as an inspirational figure in young minds. She was also afflicted with HIV, and were treated beyond repair. //After a couple of minutes the scarlet disk of sun sank into the tree-lined horizon. Susan became speechless. The loneliness of a barren evening grasped her mind for time being.// A silent battle of a woman, the story speaks against euphemism, gender-bias, foils of unemployment, significance of one's will power and the unsettling reality of life. This book is an ode to all those women who inspire others through their amazing life-saving tales and gives a message of HOPE to all, to never give up in this CRUEL WORLD.

    How will we define a Women? A human being that is made too strong to handle each and everything which a male can’t irrespective of their physical strength and place in society. We talk of empowerment but we didn’t practice it in our daily life neither do we encourage it. In this 21st Century still there are families where a girl child is seen as a liability and boys as an asset, women are seen as a non-paid maid of home.

    This is the story of Susan – a daughter, a mother, a wife. She had a tough childhood when her father passed away. Her mother was uneducated and had all the typical vices, the most prominent one being gender-bias. “Gender bias and male child obsessions are national obsessions throughout the country irrespective of caste, creed, religion, and qualification”. She gets diagnosed with HIV amidst her devastating marriage and difficult financial status, yet she never gives up no matter how overwhelming This is the story of Susan – a daughter, a mother, a wife. She had a tough childhood when her father passed away. Her mother was uneducated and had all the typical vices, the most prominent one being gender-bias. “Gender bias and male child obsessions are national obsessions throughout the country irrespective of caste, creed, religion, and qualification”. She gets diagnosed with HIV amidst her devastating marriage and difficult financial status, yet she never gives up no matter how overwhelming the situation is. Her determination, strong will, and love for her daughter helps her grow. She efficiently sustains herself and her daughter through the tough times.   Women face challenges right from the day they are born. Women are judged for being women. Men also have this humongous burden of being ‘manly’ and a provider which often leads them deeply detached from their emotions and themselves. Then we have the stigma against diseases like HIV and mental illness. People with HIV are treated as untouchables even to this day when the proper vaccine is available. Mental illness is still just a pretense to some and is “all in the head” or “just an excuse for attention-seeking”. The narration could’ve been better and in some places, it was a bit lacking. The title itself and the chapter headings act as an introduction. The vocabulary is diverse in some parts and repetitive in others. The story is inspiring but it could've been a bit more spontaneous. All in all, a very good effort.

Her life is shown beginning from Childhood. At a very young age she lost her father, and the world came crashing down on her. As the society she lived in were not supportive at all. Taunting her and her family, making their lives harder than it already was. But she faced all of the obstacles life has thrown at her very bravely. Later on she married a man she fell in love with and suffered through her father-in-law's torture and then she was diagnosed with HIV but instead of ending her life, she chose to live it for the sake of her daughter. This book is her story, of how she bravely faced all the obstacles and courageously fought. This is about women, who even after suffering the curve balls life throws at them, choose to smile and move on. About their power and uniqueness. Not only that this book also spreads awareness about HIV, which is still a taboo in our society. Author has used simple language which is easy to understand. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.

    Indomitable Susan with HIV is a story which portrays strength and perseverance instilled in women to overcome any struggles. Life is not always fair and will not be. But what makes the difference is how we react to it. We can either surrender or fight. The first choice is obviously the easiest and the second one hardest. If we choose the second option, we cannot quit in the middle. We have to stay in the tunnel till its end. Susan is an example for this epitome of perseverance. She was born in an Indomitable Susan with HIV is a story which portrays strength and perseverance instilled in women to overcome any struggles. Life is not always fair and will not be. But what makes the difference is how we react to it. We can either surrender or fight. The first choice is obviously the easiest and the second one hardest. If we choose the second option, we cannot quit in the middle. We have to stay in the tunnel till its end. Susan is an example for this epitome of perseverance. She was born in an upper-middle-class family. But she lost her father in her childhood and her struggle begins there. Their income were plummetted to one-fourth by overnight. She was forced to live in a rough adolescence life in a gender-biased society. Later she chose to marry the man she fell in love with. But this decision bought her into a life long misery. Her husband was a victim of serious mental health issues. She contracted HIV from him. When everything seemed to be going against her, she found her life-line in her daughter, Andria. It was her purpose and it gave her hope. Through this story, the author touches many societal issues. He sheds light in gender biases, mental health issues, social taboos on HIV etc. It really gives an idea of the dark side of the social construct we live in. Susan is an ordinary women. But what really makes us extra-ordinary is our deeds. She rose from nothing to self-accomplishment through her never giving up attitude. Such an inspirational story.

Earlier he refused to accept any profession than teaching, and afterwards, he wasn't left normal to occupy any profession, even teaching. Susan had child , Andria. Susan put her everything at stake to give het child education and normal atmosphere. Book holds a total of 100 chapters, which was pretty much lengthy and talked about Susan's survival with her in-laws, changing places , hospital conditions, financial crises, mental traumas, frustrations, departure of her husband etc. But in the end , she grew. She joined ngo working for HIV positive patients. And her life was a bit easy after that. Book cover is okay , language was simple and plot was good. Characterisation was impressive. I recommend this to everyone.

The book shows all sort of worries, struggles and pain of her life and despite all how she made her motherhood strong and cherish is what the story is about. This book will surely make you cry in many parts while you reading. Susan has suffered from mental, physical, financial and all sort of struggles and all these struggles were said in the detail and clear way. Even though she overcomes and made her daughter strong from all her past experiences, I really felt that the author could have cut little sorrow from the book because the pain is somehow affected me too while I am reading it.  The strong come back and overcome is really good and appreciatable. The language is really so easy to read. This book is full of women's empowerment and also will make women stronger mentally for facing life with courage. A decent one time readable.
