The Tiger Ladies is immensely, gracefully sad, an elegy for the customs and the courtliness of an irrecoverable civilization. Yet there is a sensuality running through her story. provided by Ms. Koul's devotion to Kashmiri cuisine and her description of how she has, through her kitchen, sought to keep alive the old Kashmiri ways. Her book is at once a history, memoir, and lesson; the author is both to be congratulated and thanked.
The Tiger Ladies presents Kashmir through the lives of four generations of women. Skillfully interweaving the story of her family with the story of the gods and goddesses, myths and history of this rich and unique society, Sudha Koul reveals how the women of her region have attained their extraordinary power and place in their culture-and what a fascinating culture it is. Like Indira Gandhi and her father, Jawaharlal Nehru, Koul is a Kashmiri Brahmin, traditionally the highest caste of Hindus.

Sudha Koul was born in Kashmir the year that India was partitioned. Hers was one of the few Hindu families living in the predominantly Muslim area, though as a child the two cultures lived harmoniously with their neighbours. Sudha was educated in an Irish nuns' school in the valley and eventually became the first Kashmiri woman in the Indian Administrative Service, working as a roving magistrate in remote Indian villages. She returned to Kashmir only to witness it gradually ripping itself apart through religious bigotry and political incompetence.
