This intimate autobiography, rich in details of a society in transition, was written by one of India’s earliest
women doctors. Though a child widow, driven from pillar to post, Haimabati nourished an ambition for
higher education, eventually trained as a medical practitioner, and became the ‘Lady Doctor’ in charge of
Hughli Dufferin Hospital for Women. Haimabati’s memoir illustrates the predicament of a woman determined
to earn an honourable living in a man’s world. This extraordinary account, the longest and most detailed
memoir yet discovered by an Indian woman born in the nineteenth century, was originally written in lined
school notebooks in Haimabati’s native language, Bengali.

He also held the Chair in Economic History at the Delhi School of Economics, taught as a visiting professor at Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, UC Berkeley, Australian National University and El Colegio de Mexico. His publications span many areas of social and economic history.
