Product description

Product Description

Long before the times of Draupadi and Sita
Immortalised in the hymns of Rig Veda
But forgotten to the memory of India
The Warrior Queen with an iron leg, Vishpala
Brought up in the pristine forest school of Naimisha, Avishi reaches the republic of Ashtagani in search of her destiny. When Khela, the oppressive King of the neighbouring Vrishabhavati begins to overwhelm and invade Ashtagani, Avishi rises to protect her settlement, but at a high cost.
Separated from her love, her settlement broken, with a brutal injury needing amputation of her leg, can Avishi overcome Khela?

If stories about ancient India, especially those with strong women characters interest you, then Avishi is a story you must read!

Formerly an analyst with a Venture capital firm, Saiswaroopa's interests include Startups, Economics, Carnatic Music, Philosophy, Politics, History and Literature of India. She won a state level gold medal from TTD in rendering Annamacharya Kritis. She holds an MBA from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur

Her first novel Abhaya explores the Diwali legend of Narakasura and the fascinating stories around his Shakta origins. Best Selling author Amish Tripathi has endorsed Abhaya saying,
"Abhaya allows us to delve into the world of our ancestors and Gods through the route of great storytelling and a brilliant narrative. A thoroughly enjoyable read."

Her second novel Avishi explores the forgotten RigVedic legend of Vishpala and reimagines the Rig Vedic India in its fascinating richness. Concepts like pre marital society, ancient medicine including prosthesis and democracy in ancient India have been explored in this novel.

She currently lives in London. Her next novella, Daughter of Mura is a sequel to Abhaya set in the Mahabharata times and explores the bitter sweet love story of Ghatotkacha and Mauri. She likes to focus and expand on ancient Indian stories with strong female characters. She tweets @Sai_swaroopa
