In 2005 Zubaan entered into a new and unusual partnership with the publishing giant, Penguin India. Both organizations agreed to publish a joint list of at least four titles a year. Zubaan originates the books, develops them, does the editorial work, while the print production, marketing and sales are done by Penguin.

Feminism clarifies women and men are equal
Queerness questions what constitutes male and femaleQueerness isn’t only modern, Western or sexual, says mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik. Take a close look at the vast written and oral traditions in Hinduism, some over two thousand years old, and you will find many overlooked tales, such as those of Shikhandi, who became a man to satisfy her wife; Mahadeva, who became a woman to deliver a devotee’s child; Chudala, who became a man to enlighten her husband; Samavan, who became the wife of his male friend, and many more . . . Playful and touching—and sometimes disturbing—these stories, when compared with their Mesopotamian, Greek, Chinese and Biblical counterparts, reveal the unique Indian way of making sense of queerness.
_______An excellent choice for fans of stories featuring strange goings-on, like stories by Roald Dahl, or Ruskin Bond's Rusty.
"Temsula Ao, like many of her predecessors has successfully described the experiences of her people. The struggle for freedom and the search for identity have been discussed by many writers and these are pivotal themes of those who had to pay a heavy price for freedom. To this end Temsula Ao must be praised for her successful attempt." -- Shagufta Yasmeen, Dawn
