For the Love of Laxmi: Everyday Desi Biases and the Imprints They Leave

For the Love of Laxmi: Everyday Desi Biases and the Imprints They Leave is written by Bijal Shah, born in India and raised in the US. The Author shares her own story of growing up in an Indian American household from an honest and fun point of view. In the end, all mean well, right?

Shah hopes to open a conversation for all generations to discuss the everyday remarks and comments girls so often hear in the community that don’t have a lighthearted impact. It is easy to see in this story how remarks spoken to her within her family create limitations and unnecessary insecurities. Perhaps this book is a small bridge between generations that changes the dialogue for growing young women. This book is available now on Amazon.
