Reviewed in India on 22 December 2018
The book talks about the story of Ganga and the mythological aspects of her life. In addition to the story of the Goddess Ganga, there are many small and big aspects of other Gods and Goddesses. All the major events of mythology are depicted from the eyes of Ganga. The story is told in a way that it will be loved and liked by people of all age groups.
The story starts with a young Ganga who is strong in her opinion and is really carefree. She is the daughter of the mountain king Himavat and queen Mena. Parvati is her younger sibling and their relationship is described really beautifully. It’s like any other sibling relationship; where there is love and also bitter sweet rivalry. Her life changes when she is summoned by the Gods to cleanse the Earth of the sinners.
I have always loved the writing style of the author. It’s really poetic and rhythmic. The language is simple and easy to follow.
The characters are all described beautifully and have a strong place in the story. The way the author has described Ganga is beautiful. There is a connection between the modern day women and Ganga, woman who is independent, ability to maintain complicated relationships with ease and standing up for what is right.
The pace of the book is really nice. I was completely hooked on to the book and really wanted that this book just goes on!
I will rate it a 4.5/5 and will highly recommend it to all the readers. The book is simple yet strong. It gives us a glimpse of a lesser known character of Indian mythology.
