Rose Bush: An Autobiographical Account by Dr. Indira K. Rao is an impactful page-turner that made me laugh and cry with Indira. This is the perfect book for emigrants who move to another country and are trying to find their place in society. Trying to find a balance between different cultures and traditions is a tough job and I think the author did a great job at conveying her message while being respectful of both cultures. Her story is actually very encouraging and would be a great lesson or moral support for women who want to get back on their feet and just be who they want to be. Her journey is inspirational and very motivational.
Dr. Indira K. Rao didn’t have it easy. Moving to a new country at such a young age, but keeping her chin up and fighting for her future is a great achievement. I loved the fact that she put such emphasis on education and going to any lengths to get the best education for yourself. There are many stereotypes when it comes to being a woman and many times women are forced to neglect their education and their careers for the “greater good” of the family. The author’s journey is a great example of how women can get their education, get back into the work field, and still manage to have their family if they want to. Will be easy? No. Will it be worth it? Absolutely and Dr. Indira K. Rao's journey is a testament of that.
