Comment: This is written directly for the end user, eg, women who want to know more about their lives. Inside the front cover it says this: This book is a departure from old Stri Jataka texts. In this book all questions of present society has been discussed astrologically. All brides, bridegrooms, people to be married, widows, widowers, lovers & beloved & others should take guide about their lives from astrological views embodied in this book. Dowry & fire deaths, inlaws, your husband suitable to you, all have been detailed to suit your temperament & to avoid bickerings, separations & divorce. Education, service & professions, suitable to the modern ladies can be checked to gain. Marriage & married life, love & influence of opposite sex, litigations, children, richness & poverty, diseases, health & sex life in ladies are detailed in a simple & lucid way.

Somehow a book written both for city women with busy, professional careers, and their country cousins, still subject to murder on their wedding day or flaming death on their husband's funeral pyre, seems a stretch to me. We in the west would like to think sutee (death in your husband's embers) & dowry abuse to have died out. Chawdhri says otherwise.
