Return to Book Page. The book sounded more like “Palace of Illusions” in many places, still the unstained relationship Draupadi shared with Krishna is very well narrated.

Book Review: Yajnaseni, by Pratibha Ray – A Bookworm’s Musing

That is all’ I thought my grief would provide Arjun with some encouragement. View all 7 comments. He reminded true to his friendship and even after knowing that he will lose his life in battle he stood by his words. Addicted in the game of dice, in the hope of winning, he staked all his entire immovable and movable property, his slaves, brother and himself and lost all.

It mentions the struggle of the human race; not only about a family. And I personally like it in the mythology genre Jun 27, Anuradha Kabra rated it really liked it. In all, this book definitely did leave a lasting impression on my mind! There are no discussion topics on this book yet. If they return from a long journey, I keep seat, water, food, resting place ready for them. It is a story about a women’s strength, her devotion, her intelligence, her passion and above all her sacrifice in every role she played.

Book Review: Yajnaseni, by Pratibha Ray

May 16, Pratikhya Das rated it it was amazing. Aug 21, Avinash Rajagopal rated it really liked it. I would say, this is one of the best books ever written in Odia language. And if you want a single brilliant piece, read Rasakallola by Dinakrushna Dasa. Definitely not Jackie Chan. Through insults, tribulations, joys, sorrows and laughter she carries her family through and sails forth into her life until the dice game with the Kauravas arrive.

Should only woman be forced to be the medium for preserving the dharma and annihilating evil throughout the ages? Apr 28, Vinay Leo R.

Yajnaseni: The Story of Draupadi

While I accept that a retelling needs to stick to the events that are known and loved, when the point of view changes, the emotions along with also need to change. After thirty six years of ruling the jagyasebi, the five brothers and their wife travel through the Himalayas, renouncing their world pleasures to reach the heaven.

My selection is on the basis of quite underated novels, but have brilliant contents. Published September 1st by Rupa Publishers first published Imagine then, my delight in coming across a novel in which Draupadi finally comes into her own.


I liked this jagyaseno from Draupadi’s point of view, got to know a lot more about this very integral character of the great Epic, even more so since it was narrated I haven’t read many Indian authors, and not that I’m stereotyping or anything, but they have this.

Accept the blessings of mother Kunti. Why is then a woman asked to keep a cheerful face and hide every sad emotion inside her? Five husbands means patriarchy times five. Yudhisthir is the eldest. Jan 03, Anshu rated it liked it. Shouldn’t our interpretation of the myths and legends be a little more aggressive especially considering the Yug that we are facing?

Draupadi has no pre-martial liking for any man and she obeyed the decision of her Swayamvara in spirit. Pratibha Ray is the Indian Stephanie Mayer.

But both books are equally engrossing and worth every bit of time spent in reading them. It is such a sad state of affairs that Yudhishthir went ahead and gained heaven — when in reality jagyasni was absolutely incapable to protect ANY of his loved ones. Neither is it moral or philosophical.
