Discovery Publishing House Pvt. Limited, 1996 - Adolescence - 182 pages
This book delves into the little known area of the life of the teenaged girl in India. Based on a research study of rural and urban girls of North India, the author presents a sensitive portrayal of the adolescent girl whose sense of identity is found to be strongly influenced be experiences of gender discrimination in all spheres of socialization. The students of Child Development and Psychology in India have depended on descriptions of the Western adolescent available in research literature and textbooks from abroad to understand adolescence. Indian researches in this area are few and often unpublished. This book is a step towards filling the gap in knowledge about adolescence in the Indian sociocultural context.
