"Why should we talk like men? Let's sing in our own voice. Be it a lullaby or a love-song or a passionate cry.. Vaidehi. let it be 'our' voice,"

Janaki Srinivasa Murthy, better known as Vaidehi (her pen-name), was born into a big Brahmin family, in Kundapur, coastal Karnataka. She grew up in an atmosphere of literature and music, and also of total male domination in which even speaking out loudly 'like a man' was taboo for girls. Recalling her adolescent days, Vaidehi says that she would often jealously wonder "how lucky men are!" Consequently, when she began to write stories it was natural for her to focus on the plight of women in a male-centred society. Her first collection of short stories was published in 1979 and, since then, she has published 40 works including six collections of short stories.
