Shanthamma Biography is a compilation of Indian biography by Amish Tripathi. The book was published in 2021 and made available to the public through the Indian publisher Oneways Press. In the Preface to the book, Tripathi says that the aim of this book is to write a “personal chronicle of a fascinating life, told in the style of a diary.” This is a pretty good description of what the book is about. While there are some interesting and witty anecdotes, much of what the story revolves around his family, or life, in the most basic terms.
Shanthamma is the latest release from the “Sithopanish” genre of history. Previous books in this series have been quite successful, in part because they offer some insight into the Indian intellectual and cultural traditions. The book offers no new insights and only shares the same information as previous books in the series. Still, the book does contain many memorable stories and trivia.

The main story revolves around a sixteen-year-old girl, Sailini, who is married off at the age of twelve. She has lost her own mother at a very young age and is brought up mostly by her sister. She has a younger half-brother, Tala, who has become her friend. Sailini is also very close to her aunt, Prabha, who is much older than she is and already well established in society.
The book chronicles the lives of the sister, mother, and two sisters. While most biographies focus on a woman’s life, it is rare that one focuses on the woman’s life as a child. As such, Shanthamma Biography offers up a different perspective, almost as if the writer is telling the story of a child from birth. The author adopts a light tone and manages to create an atmosphere of friendliness between the sister and aunt.
The writer manages to touch on some interesting aspects of culture. Specifically, she points out how size does not always correlate with success in Indian society. While neither is too small nor is too big, there are women who are both. Shanthamma was able to write about these women and their relationships because she lives in India.
In conclusion, this is a short book that covers some interesting topics. It is written in an engaging and humorous manner. Readers will benefit from learning about a woman’s size. They may also learn something new about Indian culture through this engaging read.
