There's a story in everyone and everyone has a story to tell.What if everyone has the same old story to tell?Will it be any different?
"The Palace Of Illusions" by @divakarunichitra is mahabharata retold by Draupadi and is more like her autobiography.
An unwelcomed child born to change the history ,wedded to Pandavas ,her life journey is unusual and eventful.
Draupadi is known to everyone for her unwavered will power and fortitude,but the least knew that she always yearned for a true friend in everyone she came across.
In this self portrait she shares her deepest secrets ,insecurities of her destined life ,questions about herself and others and she reveals to you the queen we fail to understand and moreover her feminist self.!!
As everyone she had her dark side too,but I envy her for perhaps the first ever feminist she is.Is it Draupadi or the author I envy the most ?
For she is the one who brought the queen of queens to life through maya mahal.
Had Panchali ever written her own story would it be this beautiful and convincing?
This page turner mythological fiction is unputdownable and will definitely leave you awestruck and cant refrain yourself from picking it for another round of a read..
Hands-down one of the best books by an indian author.
