I'm still not able to come out of the poignant castration from the last chapters of Rani Padmavati. It took me a solid four hours to finish and it is so different💫
It was a cascading read; with the story flowing very swiftly. Though the separate character of each character wasn't given too much importance.. the lustre and depth they represented echoed for so long.
The concluding lines on Alauddin's realization was so intense. That's what moved the core of the book according to me!! The intensity of the scenes... There weren't any imagery inserted anywhere specially..but the entire book wove a magical sequence in my mind.. the feelings it evoked in me were too far and too long..
The scenes between Padma and Ratan were so subtle still left a deep ache in the last scenes when she had to jump into the fire and he still lived at "peace" with himself..
It was a fast paced,fiery and a highly intense read!🔥🔥🔥
The embers of the story will take a really long time to satiate it's thirst and fade within me..
It was a very different one from your other books..
I loved it too much!! Thank you🌸
Padmavati is the queen of Chittor, famed for her extraordinary beauty. This is the most prominent aspect of her personality we know of, other than the tragic end she suffers, when she decides to end her life rather than be captured and possibly become another of Alauddin Khilji’s wives.
Anuja does introduce substantial material to illustrate new facets to her personality including her grace, selflessness and balance. In the face of provocation, hardship and finally tragedy – she stands tall, unflinching in her support to her husband King Rawal Ratan Singh. In the face of the eminent threat from Alauddin Khilji who sets his eyes on Chittor, after his conquest of Gujarat, Rawal Ratan Singh has only limited success in bringing together the kingdoms in the vicinity to resist him. There is also a stroke of bad luck as the kingdom is further laid low by an epidemic.
While the end is tragic, it is the memory of Rani Padmawati and Rawal Ratan Singh’s characters which endures. The book also does well to bring Alauddin Khilji’s fascination for Rani Padmavati in a fairly balanced perspective devoid of hype.
As with her other books, the writing is very good, as are the incidents which shape the personalities of the characters. There is a case though for the book to have been more expansive by introducing further new material, incidents and exposing inner thinking processes of its main characters to help us get closer to their souls.
A book I certainly recommend for the strong narrative, the depth of its characters and the impression it leaves about them.
