Through her writings, Sreemoyee Piu Kundu, a postgraduate in History from Jadavpur University, tries to make an honest effort to bring to light the pressure placed on a woman to curb her sexual desires. She is credited with bringing out topics we often choose to confine to a closed room in the darkest corners of the house, as a best-kept secret. Her book Sita's Curse became India's first feminist erotica novel. In it she explores a woman's sexual world with abandon. The book went on to become a bestseller especially among the youth.
