Draupadi: The Sati Series III
Koral Dasgupta
Price  350.00
Draupadi is immortalized in legend and myth as the beloved princess of Panchal and the queen of Indraprastha, who wrested her fate into her own hands and demanded justice against the men who sought to humiliate her. In this searing new retelling, Koral Dasgupta, author of the successful Sati series, untangles the tale of Draupadi further – a tale of a powerful, unconventional woman from the Mahabharat, who dreamt of war and revenge, underscoring why she remains one of the most unforgettable heroines in Indian mythology. *** In the Sati series, Koral Dasgupta explores the lives of the Pancha Kanyas from Indian mythology and reinvents them in the modern context with a feminist consciousness. *** Praise for Ahalya and Kunti ‘Koral Dasgupta writes with verve, emotion and passion ...'
