In the Name of the Lord : A Nun’s Tell-All first published in the Malayalam as Karthavinte Namathil, tells the story of what it is like to dedicate oneself to faith and service. It exposes the patriarchy of the church. She presents an unsettling narrative about nuns who have no freedom in their day-to-day lives and little choice but to surrender to the lechery of some of the male clergy.

At a time when women hesitate to report the sexual misconduct they face at home, at the workplace and in the society, this no-holds-barred memoir will inspire women to fight for themselves and think about how India treats it women.
