In a world increasingly divided along the lines of colour, despite its apparent modernity, here's a hard look at the realities that lurk within us, both as individuals and as a society in this book - #Otherness: Souls of Brown Women.

The century is that future which tries to forget and bury the past; and by doing so – repeating the same mistake made by their forefathers – slowly the world, in a collective whole, tips towards the far-right mentality.
