Stories about women of Singapore, exiles and dreamers, lovers and seekers of the path

Chickpeas to Cook is the story of the woman of the tribe, women from some of the smallest of communities, often no more than a few hundred families in Singapore. How do these women live, think, breathe? What does the Dawoodi Bohra woman answer, for instance, when she's asked if her daughter will don the ridah after marriage? When does the Sikh woman decide it's time to come out of her brother's shadow and live for herself? What does the Eurasian woman do when her DNA report arrives and it doesn't quite tally with what her parents told her? What does the Zoroastrian woman tell the author about bridges and confluences while she helps her navigate a difficult period of introspection?
