4.0 out of 5 stars What a powerhouse Indian historical women have been!
By Angel of Chocolates on 28 December 2020
Just read a few chapters so far, but I have to say, I am greedy to read more about these women rulers. Maybe Archana can write an entire book for each of these women leaders... Once you begin to read, you are hungry for more.
Finished reading about Tarabai. Must say, if whatever is accounted for her here is true, she must have been a rather shrewd, stone headed and invincible woman to have lived in her times and called the shots even remotely.
I love it that Indian women were so powerful and yet feel disappointed that the same character strength is not shown by women of modern India!
Every chapter, within itself, is like a book about that particular historical character!!
