The Female Ward

Dishari, a fourth-year engineering student, thinks of her treatment of a first-year as nothing but acceptable ‘ragging’ – the bullying of younger pupils by their seniors – something she herself experienced. But as events spiral out of control she is forced to question not only this, but the very foundations of ‘civil’ society.

Dishari, a fourth-year engineering student, thinks of her treatment of a first-year girl as nothing but acceptable ‘ragging’ – the bullying of younger pupils by their seniors – something she herself experienced when younger. But when a suicide attempt by this first-year student – combined with a series of trumped-up charges – leads to Dishari’s imprisonment, she finds a wealth of injustices lying at the heart of the supposedly civil society that is India, and is forced to question not only herself, but the very foundations upon which human societies are built.
