    A mythological fiction with a contemporary relevance.

    Mythological fictions are at its peak these days. Most of them concentrates around Shiv, Vishnu, Ramayana, Mahabharata. Shakuntala's story is a piece of pastry from the big cake of Mahabharata.

    Shakuntala: The Woman Wronged

    The author, Utkarsh Patel, has astutely observed the different moral yardsticks of our society which still remain unaltered.Because of such double standards, almost all stories revolving around Dushyant have depicted the king as an upright man of high morals who becomes a victim of some strange curse and forgets about his love and marriage. He was hardly ever shown as one pleasure seeking wily king...
    But here in this story, author has dared to call a spade a spade....King Dushyant engaged in...
