Book Summary: Saturated Agitation highlights the probable consequences of the on-going scenario in the Indian society in terms of crime against women. The devilish spectrum of the heinous beasts has no boundaries. Glass particles and iron rods are being inserted inside a female's body! Age is no bar! 5 or 55, you are not safe anymore! Being a girl, the author feels the agitation in the females of this country is reaching a saturation point. She fears that this abhorrence might lead to fatal consequences. Women might become vulnerable to committing detestable sins against the culprits! This idea frightens and intrigues her at the same time. What if the weaker sex took justice in their hand?

Book review: Saturated Agitation by Surabhi is a statement in itself. The writer is extremely concerned about the atrocities against women prevalent in our society. The book delves deeply into the dilemma, anger and frustration faced by the “softer sex” in this society. The protagonist Ekta James Kapoor, an entrepreneur, is an extremely successful woman.Inspite of having excessive wealth and getting immense admiration, she is a lonely person who has no one to call her own. She is a level headed woman who feels strongly that women deserve more respect than they are getting. She struggled by the present scenario and offers solutions to the aforesaid problems. One feels that the writer has made the protagonist her mouth piece to convey her views to the reader. The writer depicts the humiliation have to face. She is appalled at the fact that even children and old women are not spared. There is the feeling of disgust as well as perturbation that forces her to write that if these victims retaliate one fine day, if they feel one day that the situation must be rectified and if they feel that the male chauvinist need to be eradicated from the society, what the consequences would be?”What if....that is what she wonders would happen due to these troubled thoughts that have reached a saturation level if they overflow one day. The book is remarkable in its narration, the highlight of the book is the poem “Not Amiss”, which speaks volumes of the incessant humiliation that women have to go through at all stages of life. The book is recommended to be read not just by all women but also by all men so that they understand that this endless provocation needs to be stopped.
