Some brief overview of book
The Indian epics gain strength and renewal with every telling and retelling. Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan s compelling and accomplished narration of the crucial story of Amba and Shikhandi is a timely reminder of the constant currency and relevance of the Mahabharata. Namita Gokhale Book One, The One Who Swam with the Fishes, told the tale of Satyavati on the cusp of womanhood.
She is now Queen of Hastinapur and the story moves forward to the kingdom of Kashi, where Princess Amba is growing up with her sisters, Ambika and Ambalika. A swayamvara is arranged for them, where Amba plans to wed Prince Salva, the love of her life. However, an unexpected figure walks into the ceremony and thwarts all plans of a happy ending.
In another life, Shikhandi, has never been what he seems. With his close companion, Utsarg, he embarks on a journey to look for a yaksha who will give him what he wants to be a Kshatriya prince in body and in mind. But, along the way, he might have to lose some of himself, the part he calls Shikhandini...
Searching beyond gender, duty and tradition, Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan draws out the lesser-known characters of the Mahabharata and tells their stories with compassion and grit.
