Looking for the works of Dina Mehta

I am Gurpreet Kaur from Ranchi. My sister Ramnik Kaur is a research scholar doing Ph.D on topic “Contribution of Dina Mehta to Indian Writing in English”. Ms. Dina Mehta, a play writer from Parsi Community has written plays like Brides are not for Burning, Getting Away with Murder, Myth Maker, Tiger Tiger, A Sister Like You, novels like Mila in Love, And Some Take A Lover and many short stories. She won the first play writing competition sponsored by BBC for her play Brides Are Not For Burning in 1979.
She wrote to highlight the problems of Indian Women focusing on issues like dowry, female foeticide, witchcrafting, child abuse, infertility blames and many such burning topics.
Highly impressed by her work, we thought of writing thesis on her works and after much effort we could get few short stories and the play Brides are not for Burning.
However we could not buy other plays and novels written by Ms. Dina Mehta even after our sincere efforts.
The books are not published any more by the publishers. Ebook are not available. Amazon cancels the order.
We want to request through your page if any member can help us with the novels and plays written by her, we shall ever remain obliged.
We tried to search about her on Google but all in vain. We wish to talk to her or someone from her family in context of our research paper.
Please help us with whatever information you can share about this gem of your community.
