How would you like to wander around ancient India during the Mahabharata war, witness its unique customs, experience the rigid social structures, and glimpse the remote tribes while helping a young widow? Journey with Siya and experience her many trials as she tries to unravel the mystery of a strange symbol that she hopes will lead to finding her husband’s killer.
On the journey with her, see if you are daring enough to protect her from near-death experiences along a treacherous route full of inhuman and non-human predators. You will need a lot of courage.
Eventually, you will realize that human emotions—love, hatred, compassion, and revenge are universal and timeless. Passions exist now just as they existed then.
Unlike other retelling of mythical stories, the novel Undesired Duty is about how the lives of commoners were affected by the decisions made by the gods, kings and heroes of Mahabharata. The unfolding story is about the people who lived simple lives that caused them to struggle between the duties imposed on them and the desires they longed to fulfill.
