    Description

    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, p...

    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...

    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 h...

    A Good Book to Read.

    A gripping tale with linkages into our history. Well worded to create the landscape in mind with the emotions and all being personified by each character. The climax is good and enthralling. All in all a good work by Anurag Anand.

    One of the best books i have read in a long time..

    Amrapali, we all know is an enigma and her grandoise life has been presented in various forms time and again. Only, most of the litreature available treats her like a larger than life entity, a girl who was 'meant' to be what she became. However, this was the first book where i could read and visualise the trauma of a normal young girl and her plight as she embarked on a path that eventually made her the 'Nagarvadhu' we know.

    To me what was particularly astounding was that the author, a mal...

    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 an...

    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!!

    Nice theme but could have been lot better

    Great theme and nice story. It is emotional at places and touching overall. The author writes well all along but misses the pulse at places. He could have elevated the emotions throughout and could have created a more gripping tale. There are a few instances where the book leaves it to the readers to explain a few unconnected dots (or it is just a mistake!).

    Could have been more interesting.

    Amrapali, the courtesan (nagarvadhu - ??????), is well known. Tales of her beauty and dancing skills are passed down from generation to generation. Her generosity and the work that she did for the society are also known. However nobody knows her as a human being, as a girl and a woman.

    The story becomes very interesting towards the end of the book. She was not only beautiful and excellent dancer but she was also just and was an expert in kootaniti (???????). The story of how she saved her mo...
