Sutradhar presents ‘Bitter Chocolate’, by journalist and best-selling author Pinki Virani. The book opens with an account “brave and devoid of self-pity”of the author’s own experience. Going beyond blaming, Pinki Virani then proceeds with her insightful analysis of the issue in three notebooks. The first spells out what is CSA, why and how this happens, its devastating after-effects which haunt the victims as they grow into adulthood. The second notebook describes these effects through two real-life stories of women who were betrayed as children by men of their family.

A special chapter addresses adults who have never before disclosed their sexual abuse as children. Plus: a nationally coordinated help line. Accessible yet comprehensive., “Bitter Chocolate” is written for the young parent and guardian, principal and teacher, judge and police, lawyer and public prosecutor, teenager and tomorrow’s citizen.
