9788171673230: Yajnaseni: The Story of Draupadi

The undoubted heroine of the Mahabharata, one of the honoured 'pancha sati', one of the five most virtuous women in Hindu mythology, Draupadi is still seen by many as the woman responsible for the greatest war of all time. In this historical novel, Pratibha Ray makes an admirable attempt to present a balanced portrait of Draupadi and in doing so, skilfully brings to the forefront the deeper aspects of the character and mind of the remarkable Pandava Queen.

Book Description Rupa Publications India Pvt. Ltd. 0. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The story of Draupadi, one of the most fascinating characters in the Mahabharata. Strange as it may appear, Draupadi, the most accomplished heroine of the Mahabharata, happens to be the most suffering, sacrificing, and yet the most misunderstood character from the epic. Though counted among the five supremely virtuous women, honoured as pancha sati in mythology, the name Draupadi still bears stigma and is often contemptuously uttered by people in society as the woman who brought about the greatest war of all times. Pratibha Ray makes a determined effort for a balanced portrayal of the epic character and brings to the surface the broader and deeper aspects of Draupadis mind that lay submerged in the majestic sweep of the grand Mahabharata. Printed Pages: 408. Bookseller Inventory # 83354
