Sorry! This book is no longer available to read.

Synopsis

Draupadi or Krishnaa as she was known and Karna or Vasusena as was his real name are one of the two most intriguing characters of the Mahabharata.

Legends and Folk tales have abounded of their secret passion for one another.

This story is one among the plethora of tales dealing with the forbidden love of these two great characters.

Book One, titled The Fire Does not Consume is written exclusively from Draupadi’s POV and it deals with her life as a Princess, a Bride, a Queen and finally as an Exile.

Through these pages, the reader gets an insight into the heart of the most enigmatic woman of her times.

Book Two titled The Sun Does Not Scorch is written from Karna POV dealing with his life as a charioteer’s son, a King, a warrior and finally as the elder brother of his most hated enemies.

Through these pages, the reader is shown the life of the tragic hero that was Karna.

And through their eyes, a glimpse of the world in which they lived, a world that is long gone, a world that was Aryavarta

Glad to have come across a compelling and hitherto unknown story from Indian Mythology, instead of all the various 'interpretations' that have flooded the market. However, the title is misleading, and should be renamed to something more appropriate. I believe the title should positively pique readers' emotions/expectations, without them having to read the synopsis. Looking forward to reading the rest of this book. Good Luck !

nicely-written. I do believe this is quite readable if one enjoys Indian mythological themes. (But I did not feel as if I was reading something fresh and exciting.) Commendable effort from the writer.

Whenever a story or its characters captivate me, I often like to indulge in re-imaginings with different plot twists and even endings. Being of limited patience myself, I don't go much further than that. But if others do it for me, ... oh bliss! Thus, I love retellings, with new plot angles and perspectives. And if it deals with characters I am obsessed about (like Karna), all the more better. Accordingly this story too seems promising. The prose is fluid and reads well. I would definitely like to read the whole story.

The 'what if' about the whole karna - draupadi dynamic has been fascinating mahabharata readers for centuries. Absolutely loved this fresh and unbiased account of two of the most interesting characters in the epic. Would definitely love to read more of this as the language is simple yet elegant and the storytoo is fast paced.

Intriguing and well-written, I enjoyed this excerpt. The cover, however, does not fit in with the plot, and maybe the title too could be more specific and reflect the nature of the storyline. Currently, the title does not do full justice to what the reader is about to experience.

It is a very interesting and a very unique concept that has been quite a subject capturing the fantasies of mythological authors since quite a long time. The prose is beautiful, and provides a refreshing perspective on the characters in a way seldom seen before. It is a wonderful literary work.

I generally hate mythos, because they are too lengthy, technical in their usage of words and characters and over just a "me too".
But your manuscript is refreshing and so fast paced, that I kept pressing the forward button, even when done, hoping for some more chapters.
I have in the past too, pointed out your flawless writing and innovative take on the story line and this is no exception.
This should be published, before it's too late and we forget what intriguing writing is all about.

The author has a knack for mythological fiction. The situations, dialogues between protagonists, their feelings, are captured very well, making this an interesting read.

Hi this one is marvellous . I have always been lured by mythological books. My favorite so far has been Mahabharata. Draupadi has been a strong, and a facinating character. The one who was politically powerful during that era. I would love to read the intricacies of her mind. . The title is apt. A story lost in time. I can't think of a title that is more perfect ... From the synopsis its about the forbidden love between two strongest and most powerful characters of the epic. Yet so perfect for each other. Unfortunately fate didn't allow them to unite. This was one subject I wanted to read and thanks to you am going to read it.
