Her angst at the righteous and impeccable Yudhistir which is equal parts admiration and revulsion, the love laced with fear and respect for the titanic Bhim, sensual, poetic love for Arjun and motherly affection for Nakul and Sahdev are all captured very well here.

Both my tutor and my father said that I was scholarly, Knowledge-hungry. I say this because not many things were as elaborate as they should be for example the time before and after the Kurukshetra is shown but not the war! I liked this book from Draupadi’s point of view, got to know a lot more about this very integral character of the great Epic, even more so since it was narrated in first person.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Yajnaseni: The Story of Draupadi

Rs Price in reward points: I should have read the Mahabharata before reading this. Would urge everyone to read this one.

If i were in Arjun’s place and Ma [Queen Kunti] had ordered that the woman I had won in the svayamvar [contest to win a bride] was to be shared by other brothers, I would have left that kingdom…I do not consider blindly obeying improper directives as the sign of manhood.

Main thing I didn’t like, as I had mentioned above, was un-realistic sentiments. I didn’t like how Jagyaseno is portrayed in this book. I had not expected such cruelty from you.

Draupadi is a symbol of Indian woman. The sentence of exile from Ram! It is an age old urban legend among many writers that the characters of epics need to speak jagyasenl dipped in melodrama and dyed in flowery prose. I acknowledge that your husband is brave. This is re-telling of the epic Mahabharata from the view point of Draupadi, highlighting her sorrows, happiness, challenges and mental dilemma.
