All the five sons of Draupadi were killed in their sleep by Asvathama. Who are these four brothers of mine? I do not understand the devotion towards a man just because he is the husband even after he put her at stake in a game of dice. Her life sails on with her responsibilities towards her husbands, her joys, sorrows and sacrifices. Trust me all stories are amazing.
Yajnaseni: The Story of Draupadi by Pratibha Ray
This is not what Draupadi is supposed to be about. I think that is what Pratibha Ray wanted to say too Main thing here is that Pratibha Ray has put Draupadi into the stereotyped repesentation of Indian woman. The day arrives of the very un-fateful dice gook. I feel wonderful that even before centuries, Odia literature had an image among the revolutionary writings.
But at the end of the book, my sympathies as the most unfortunate character in Mahabharat go with Draupadi than with Karna. What is a myth?
With lowered eyes, slowly I advanced towards the prescribed spot. The narration doesn’t absolutely do any justice to the title “Yajnaseni” which is supposed to mean born from fire or even the vibrant glowing cover. It is not that she can’t fall in love with Karna due to morality issue.
Updated Sep 20, The language, the descriptions, the way she portrays emotions is really beautiful! This is not a whine or playing a victim card. I read a Kindle edition of My Little India, and was floored by the stories he has so beautifully described.
Draupadi’s chastity is a question of ridicule since eternity. If women are not capable of bearing everything, family ties get loosened. She is the princess of Panjaal, Daughter of mighty jabyaseni Durupad, sister of the fire-born warrior Drishtadyumna, queen of the Pandavas and the mistress of the most beautiful palace on the earth.
Jun 06, Muthuprakash Ravindran rated it really liked it. I acknowledge that your husband [Arjuna] is brave. Through the example of Draupadi it shows that how even without any wrongdoing of their own, women are declared faulty and punished. The book sounded more like “Palace of Jagyaseji in many places, still the unstained relationship Draupadi shared with Krishna is very well narrated.
Throughout the book you find that Draupadi either praises herself or sings songs of the beauty of Arjun or Krishna. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Pure, law abiding, beholder or their honour, personification of beauty and sacrifice.
She is submissive, and yet dictates terms. She does deserve to seek revenge. May 16, Pratikhya Das rated it it was amazing. To add to woes, the English translation is stiff, prudish and thoroughly stilted.
What was the most amazing book you have read? This is the only difference between Arjun and myself. Unlike the other rivals, he leads the story into a jeopardised farmer family and revolves around Baraju, the lead character of the story and how he manages to settle down the family problem, by Gandhibaad.
It is a kingly right! She saw how with one blow I killed her brother, Hidimb. Uagyaseni heart pains for draupadi.
Yajnaseni: The Story of Draupadi
I have always imagined Draupadi as outspoken, someone who didn’t care what others thought. But although the beginning of the book intrigued me, the chauvanist angle given by Pratibha Ray started putting me off. Girl meets boy sort of. But on the other side her name is often used to refer to a woman of easy virtue. Related Products 2 Sale.
Book Review: Yajnaseni, by Pratibha Ray – A Bookworm’s Musing
Many have notified some really really quality writings. To do that she had to change the other characters, like Bhima as a lecherous glutton like one of those dakoos of old movies. Jun 16, Anupama rated it it was amazing. She is too meek and all accepting. I liked this book from Draupadi’s point of view, got to know a lot more about this very jagtaseni character of the great Epic, even more so since it was narrated in first person.
