The epitome of Sanskrit literature, The Mahabharatha is a story of war, conflict, bloodshed and men. But it also the story of the women by their side, and primarily the story of the children of Ganga and Satyavati. The Winds of Hastinapur is a mythological fantasy about the women behind the Mahabharatha.
Summary of the Book
Ganga, the river goddess, is dying. Bereft of a virgin to pass her knowledge and being to, she is fading away and seeks to tell the story of the Mahabharatha as she saw it. In her words and the words of other strong women from the epic such as Satyavati, this book lays bare the greatest epic ever told from the women who knew it best.
