Product Description

'In a few moons the Goddess will claim me, and I do not have a fresh young virgin by my side to absorb my knowledge and take my place once I am gone. The Mysteries of Ganga and her Sight will vanish with me.' 'My hair is white and thin, now. In a few moons, the Goddess will claim me, and I do not have a fresh young virgin by my side to absorb my knowledge and take my place once I am gone. The Mysteries of Ganga and her Sight will vanish with me, and the Great River will become nothing more than a body of lifeless water ... It is my intention, therefore, to tell you the story as it happened, as I saw it happen.' The Mahabharata is the story of women, even though men have focused far too much on the Great Battle. It is women who have set events in motion, guided the action and measured the men. The Winds of Hastinapur begins at the point that Ganga was cursed and sent to Earth. She lives among the mortals and bears Shantanu, the King of Hastinapur, seven children, all of whom she kills. With the eighth, she leaves. That boy, who returns to Earth, will prove to be the key to the future of Hastinapur.The story, as told through the lives of his mother Ganga and stepmother Satyavati, is violent, fraught with conflict and touched with magic. A lady of the river who has no virgin daughter to carry on her legacy, Celestials who partake of a mysterious lake they guard with their very lives, sages overcome by lust, a randy fisher-princess - these and other characters lend a startling new dimension to a familiar tale. SharathKomarraju does not so much retell the epic as rewrite it

About the Author

Sharath Komarraju lives in Bangalore with an ever-swelling stack of books that threatens to one day swallow and digest him. On a typical day he spends nine hours testing software and two writing fiction. (He's currently engaged in a top-secret plan to reverse that balance.) In his free time he can be found either hunched over his laptop, talking to his wife, or munching on roast almonds - or doing all three at once, if the day's good for multitasking. The Winds of Hastinapur is his third novel, after Murder in Amaravati (Amaryllis, 2012) and Banquet on the Dead (Westland, 2012).
