    Description

    Cuckold narrates the captivating story of a Rajput Prince who has to fight for what is his right in Mewar. While the book describes the political turmoil he faces, it also sheds light on his personal life. His wife, Mira, believes she is married to Lord Krishna and refuses to accept him as her husband. Cuckold, written by Kiran Nagarkar, offers a moving and fictional take on the legendary story.

    Summary of the Book

    Cuckold is the story of the Rajput prince, Maharaj Kumar, the husband of Mira. The Prince calls himself a cuckold because he discovers that his wife is irrevocably in love with the Lord Krishna. Maharaj Kumar aches for her love and is left unfulfilled due to Mira’s devotion to the Hindu deity. This fictional tale then whirls around the tangled web of politics - vicious battles are fought within the Kingdom to decide on the deserving heir after the King’s death, although the Rajput Kingdom is at the peak of its power. The Prince prepares himself for the battle by planning his strike and defence well in advance. Cuckold weaves history, politics, romantic desire, epics and mysticism together to offer a riveting read. Readers are introduced to the Rajput community’s way of living and their system of valour, sacrifice and honour. The book won Nagarkar the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award in the year 2000, and has been translated to several other languages.

    Bets of Historical Fiction

    Discovering Kiran Nagarkar was like being handed the privilege of witnessing a superhero in action. Cuckold was the first book I read of his and I can safely say that I have more than just satisfied.
    Nagarkar is a master storyteller. This book, set in the 1500s, is an amusing and extremely gripping narration of the kind of society and atmosphere that prevailed back in the 16th century. The prose is rich and though provoking and so colorful that you feel like you can almost smell the aromas of...

    Historical masterpiece

    I generally judge Indian authors differently from Western authors and give them more leeway. This book shook my perceptions on Indian writing and my biggest joy was that this was written by an Indian with literary flair.

    This is one of the best books I have read in the recent past and like some earlier reviewers mentioned, I found it sad towards the end as I didn't want it to end.

    The book was an extremely well-written historical novel portraying the memoirs of the Prince of Chittor and the...

    Must Read

    Beautiful story telling, fast paced, drama, sex, politics, literally everything that a book needs to get your motor running. You can relate to the thought process in the prince's mind and the end will just leave you devastated. You'd really wish there was more. Its been some time since I can connect emotionally with a fictional character. Just read it and you wont regret it. You have my word :)

    Great Indian writing

    Firstly I should admit, the cover is appealing. Secondly, the one liner appreciation of India's best writer on the cover compelled me to buy this book.

    Buying the book was totally worth it. I have just started and it is fantastic. Kiran is definitely not one of the Indian writers who disappoints. More when I complete the book.

    An absolute pageturner!

    Just finished reading Cuckold by Kiran Nagarkar. It's been ages that I read any of historical fictions, but this one was an absolute page turner. The book is complex, thought provoking and absolutely brilliant. It has 600 plus pages and I was completely enchanted by the charm of Nagarkar's language, lucid story telling, weaving philosophical threads in between seamlessly. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

    A must, must, must read

    Cuckold was recommended by a friend who spoke highly of the book. I would second his opinion here. I usually avoid books with historical background as i found them boring. Cuckold is everything but boring. Such a well written book. Certainly one of the best books i've read in the recent past.

    The history, the culture, malevolent ambitions, malicious politics outside and inside the palace, the rajpooti aan, baan and shaan is vividly depicted. The narration and story telling is gripping. It wa...
