One Little Finger is the story of one woman's victory against the odds that society puts in front of her. This woman is Malini Chib,who had been diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a very early age and currently lives a busy life as a lecturer and researcher. The book is an account of the odds that were faced by this woman who found the society around her to be ill equipped to accept people like her into the mainstream of life. She was born with a condition that has the same effects that a stroke has in adults.This resulted in restricted bodily movements. It was with the help and support of her family and friends and immense will power that she educated herself. She overcame her motor and speech disorders by teaching herself to type with her little finger and speak through the Lightwriter. The ultimate achievement was a career in event management. The story is one of personal achievement and an example to show how individual determination can win over any obstacle.

The language is simple and there is no attempt to resort to euphemisms. There is never a dull moment...Highly recommended reading and instructive too. -- Freedom First There is a frank openness in a Bildungsroman that endears any reader to the central character - Malini has caught that pat on... She confides in the reader every little secret, every emotion, success, frustration, and humiliation... Malini's enthusiasm and joie de vivre is mighty infectious, and that makes One Little Finger the book for a dark day. Its child-like fist pumping will pick you up and convince you that triumph is just one little finger away. -- The Hindu
