The Legend Of Amrapali (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.115

The story about The Legend Of Amrapali is of destruction and great suffering caused by the stubborn desires of a single man who was drunk with power and arrogance.

Summary Of The Book

Around 500 B.C., Aryavart was a land comprising a number of prosperous kingdoms. Among them, the most outstanding one was the Vajji Confederacy, which was among the first democratic republic known by mankind. Vaishali was the capital of the confederacy and the renowned Lichchavis clan. It was a center of political and commerce activity and also Amrapali’s blessed motherland.

The Legend of Amrapali is about Amrapali who was a clever, famous courtesan. She was pretty, talented and had all the qualities that courtesans living in the city of Vaishali were meant to have. Vajji confederacy was ruled by king Manudeva. Manudeva becomes infatuated by Amrapali when he catches a glimpse of her while attending Gautama Buddha’s discourse. From childhood, Amrapali has been in love with Pushpakumar, whom she wanted to marry. The king’s proposal for making Amrapali his queen is rejected by her father. Hence, the king traps Pushpakumar in a false spying case and simultaneously arranges for declaring Amrapali as “Nagarvadhu”, a position that requires her to entertain the king along with the other nobles of the king’s court. While escaping from prison, Pushpakumar is killed, which forces Amrapali to become the state courtesan. The story then weaves around Amrapali’s attempts to take revenge against Manudeva for murdering Pushpakumar, and the difficult situations she finds herself in.

Different from the usual breed of authors - a fresh breeze

It was the subject of the book that made me order it and i wasn't quite sure as to what to expect from it since i hadn't read any of Anurag's earlier works. The book however came as a pleasant surprise and by the end of the first chapter i knew that i was going to spend a better part of my Friday night in finishing it - which i eventually did.

The story is fast paced, beautifully written and contains all the elements that one can expect from a good book - drama, twists, love, sex, glamour, passion and deceit. Even peripheral characters (particularly the Mongolian Warrior and Amrapali's fri...

The story is fast paced, beautifully written and contains all the elements that one can expect from a good book - drama, twists, love, sex, glamour, passion and deceit. Even peripheral characters (particularly the Mongolian Warrior and Amrapali's friend, Prabha) leave a lasting impression on ones mind through their sheer depth. The description of political maneuvers from a period 2500 years back in time is such that it could fit in perfectly with the antics adopted by some of the politicians of today, reminds you of the Borgias. Most importantly, after finishing the book i was left with a satisfied feeling that i had learnt something new... a feat that most new-age authors don't even attempt with their versions of chick books. Kudos to Anurag for coming out with a beautiful book - one that i will recommend very highly and which takes us back to our glorious past...

A great read

I picked this book simply because I was intrigued by the subject of the book - Amrapali. And I must say that I am not disappointed. The author has presented the story beautifully and Amrapali's character has been crafted really well. Though the plot is simple and since the book is short there are not too many twists and turns, but still it is enjoyable. I was compelled to check out more historical information about Amrapali's life after reading the book. Kudos to Anurag for weaving together history and fiction fantastically.

More than an engaging read!

I had black-listed the publisher, Srishti Books, because of one of their titles i had accidently picked up. I think it was called... Few Things Left Unsaid... or something like that! A horrible book with terrible language and a nonsensical story line that had turned me off bigtime and i had vowed never to experiment with the so called 'bestsellers' from this particular publisher. However it was the subject of the book, The Legend of Amrapali that made me take one more punt and i was glad that i did so.

However it was the subject of the book, The Legend of Amrapali that made me take one more punt and i was glad that i did so.

The book, while based in historical times, is completely relevant even today. Its rapid narration and fast pace made me as engrossed as i would be while reading a Sydney Sheldon or a Jeffrey Archer. Once i began the book, i simply couldn't put it down. When i completed reading it, i felt accomplished, since i had learnt something new from it as well... the story of an enigma from our glorious past. Anurag Anand was most impressive with his prose and that only makes me wonder as to what is an author like him doing with a publisher like Srishti? Anurag, if you are reading this... move on dude.. The Penguins, Hatchettes and Rupas of the world are waiting... Your book deserves to be a Bestseller and Srishti is not going to make that happen!

Looking forward to reading more from this promising author!

Worth to admire

The Legend of Amrapali is a book that will take you to the high of well designed literature. It has all the grip you want in a book. You will enjoy it and surprised by it's so mature language.
It's not like that well formed novel where you will find every drama and action have a directed path. This book has a real charecter with real need and real struggle of that time period of era.
About the story, it's not the whole truth of amrapali in a certain way but it still manage the genre and bitterness of her torched life and her well talented performance on the stage of fate. Beautifully...

About the story, it's not the whole truth of amrapali in a certain way but it still manage the genre and bitterness of her torched life and her well talented performance on the stage of fate. Beautifully written and explored by writer, sometimes it seems more explored than required but still not boring, maybe you won't even recognize that. The story is tight and well planned executed.
I have been looking ahead for more creation from Anurag Anand. It has been a worth read.
A huge Thanx to Anurag...

The Legend Of Amrapali

This book is really good..facinating story composed with rather beautiful vocab..one of those books I have been glued to from the first page to the last (partly maybe cos i am a voracious reader.. )But not only does it potray a different shade of the history we are quite acquainted with, but the persona and emotional turmoil of a Nagarvadhu.
Now i am certainly compelled to read more from this Author!!

Avoid

The book is best avoided. It was a drag right from the beginning and instead of a narrative, or story seems more of a translation of the original text. Some how this one did not gel with me. Avoidable at best. Am giving 2 stars for the time and effort everyone behind the book put in. (View complete review)

Engaging throughout!

Maybe it is the story, or maybe it is the lucid writing style....the book is worth the money and time. For the people who like racy stories would love this one. After a long time, got my hands on a book that satisfied the reader in me. In short the book has a simple story that will be appreciated... (View complete review)
