Book Review: "Struggled & Soared" by Vipin Chopal is an inspirational book depicting the short biographical lives of four great Indian women who have not only made India proud but also paved the way for future generations to follow. This book can be regarded as the author's personal take on how he was inspired by reading the history behind some of India's greatest female figures. It serves as a memory of how they fought against social evils to make a mark in time.

First, we have Lata Mangeshkar whose melody has touched every Indian heart. The author writes about her struggle as a child and teenager and how she ultimately became a household name winning awards and recognition passing into legend. Second, we have Amrita Pritam whose writings and personal take on love and the partition of India has left literature enthusiasts baffled even today. It is praiseworthy to note how she kept herself strong and happy refusing to let a male-dominated society dictate her. Third, we have Meerabai whose unconditional love and devotion to Lord Krishna set forth a movement in itself during the Dark Ages of India when people were leaderless. And lastly, we have Rani Laxmi Bhai whose bravery and courage against the British Rule is not unknown to any Indian. The author has been successful in delivering meaningful and personal insights into their lives which has helped in making this book truly inspirational.

This book will appeal to a lot of readers who are looking for a short read that will instill feelings of patriotism. It is a reminder of the courageous and exceptionally talented women from all spheres of India who serve as a reminder that women too can face challenges and overcome difficulties to make one's country proud. Readers will get to witness the brighter side of being a woman while reading this short but wonderful book.
