Glimpses of Memories is a verbatim account of one woman's life in the India of the early twentieth century as it struggles to cast off both its own oppressive practices, and also the unwelcome and draconian rule of the British masters.Ratnakar Bhattacharyya has decided to share with the world the narrative that his grandmother, Indumati Bhattacharyya began as a younger woman, memories which were written by her initially and then later on, captured by her son when she became too infirm to continue writing. It is a fascinating social commentary, recounted from the perspective of Indian village life, and details the outdated practices of the caste system, the plight of women in Indian society in general and the gathering momentum of the struggle to overturn the governance of the British. A candid and poignant account, Glimpses of Memories is made even more heartfelt because it is penned by someone who was there at the time and seen through her eyes, a compelling read.

Ratnakar Bhattacharyya was born in Jorapukur in pre-partition Bengal. He graduated in medicine from Calcutta University in 1959, choosing a medical career like his father and grandfather, when he could not get into the engineering course of his choice. He has worked in many countries and currently lives in Sydney.
