Product description

About the Author

Kavita Kané is a former journalist and the bestselling author of five books. She is considered a revolutionary force in Indian writing because she has brought in feminism where it is most needed—mythology. Her five novels are all based on women in Indian mythology: Karna’s Wife (2013); Sita’s Sister (2014), on Ramayana’s most neglected character, Urmila; Menaka’s Choice (2015), on the apsara, Menaka; Lanka’s Princess (2016), on the female antagonist in the Ramayana, Surpanakha; and The Fisher Queen’s Dynasty (2017) on Satyavati, the grand matriarch in the Mahabharata.

After a career of over two decades in Magna and DNA, Kavita quit her job as assistant editor of Times of India to devote herself to writing novels full-time. With a post-graduate degree in English literature as well as in journalism and mass communication, the only skill she has, she confesses, is writing.

Passionate about theatre, cinema and art, she is also a columnist, a screenplay writer and a motivational speaker, having given several talks all across the country in educational and research institutes, corporate and management fora and literary festivals.

Born in Mumbai, with a childhood spent largely in Patna and Delhi, she currently lives in Pune with her mariner husband, Prakash, their two daughters, Kimaya and Amiya, two dogs Chic and Beau, and Cotton, the uncurious cat.

You can also see my detailed review on my Youtube channel:- Rajivs Reviews

This is the first book I am reading from the author and I really enjoyed her style of writing. I loved how she stuck close to the mythological tale, but also included her own thoughts into the story-line. She has written them in such a way that is even relevant in today's society that readers can connect with. Moreover, Ahalya is a strong character who is independent and wants gain more knowledge and is a good role model. Unfortunately, her only weakness is that she loses focus and falls in love, thus changing her path to becoming a wife and a mother, which does not end up well in her case. Indra also makes for a very interesting villain, where you can see the obsession and lust he has for her and will not give up going after her.

However, the only thing which I found odd in the story was how Gautam suddenly loses interest in Ahalya. It seemed strange how after so many years of loving her and being in a happy marriage, he suddenly becomes grouchy and yells at her and stops teaching her without any reason. I also hoped the there would be some closure to Sachi's storyline as I liked her character, but she disappears towards the end. But overall, I enjoyed reading this book a lot and am keen on picking up some of the author's other works as well.
