Shades or shadows in the life of Jung Bahadur Rana who founded the Rana dynasty that ruled Nepal for 104 years, Hidden Women are women about whom we know nothing, or very little. Not much is written about the women in his life in the archives except that against his wishes they committed sati when he was cremated. Strong and independent, the women had influence on him, enjoyed a prominent place in his life and ironically, the one he admired most tried to kill him. Narrated through the eyes of the women in his life, it is a novel look at Jung Bahadur Rana’s story. Meticulously researched, Greta Rana builds together a feasible picture of how women lived and thought, hoped and died in a restrictive feudal society of Nepal.
