Book Review - Karthikeya by Usha Narayanan

Image
Mythological stories most of us have heard since our childhood back in India. From our Grandparents, Parents, Uncles, and Aunts. Picking Usha Narayanan’s book is always a trip back to those storytelling sessions. Very nostalgic! Except here we have more details and nuances which either we would have forgotten having heard or was not a part of the narration we heard. The extensive research she has done to collect all the information on the deity who is known with different names in different parts and very many stories about him has brought this book alive in a readers mind. Every book of Usha’s I’ve read is beautiful. This is my third book of Usha Narayanan. Karthikeya gives a lot to envision and savor. Here in this book the wars and violence were heart-wrenching. Some images are going to haunt me for ages. Usha Narayan's imageries of war are very very vivid.   All in all, it’s a great read.
Grab the book from here.

Blurb: 
When Princess Chitrangada Vasudeva of Jodhana runs away from her bodyguards in the European city of Zurich, the last thing she expects is to be incarcerated with a stranger in his hotel suite for three days and nights.

Prince Rajvardhan Thakore of Udaipur is on his way to take part in the ice polo event at St. Moritz and plans to take a much-needed break in Zurich. He’s thrown for a toss when he stops his car to help a damsel in distress. A few minutes into the encounter, he finds out that “Princess” is anything but a helpless female.

Sparks fly, and how!

Until that morning when Princess simply ups and leaves Rajvardhan without a contact number or a forwarding address. He doesn’t even know her real name.

And then they meet again under the most unusual of circumstances back in Rajasthan, during Chitrangada’s engagement to Raja Harischandra Gajanan of Indore. Even stranger is the fact that her fiancĂ© is more her father’s contemporary than hers.

Sumitra Ghosal came all the way from Bankura in West Bengal to join the education service in the recently formed Bundeli State. During the period from 1956 to 1990, spanning more than three decades, she got shunted around small towns and semi-rural areas. The book is woven around her experiences on women teachers lives. She found for some teachers, cruel circumstances charting out the unknown trajectory, while for the others, the evil streak already present manifested itself rather blatantly during their teaching careers.
Ranging from the weird to the quirky, scheming to whimsical, there were all kinds of women for Sumitra to experience and continuously learn from. Bearing a religious bent of mind, Sumitra, a spinster by choice, didn’t fail to take cognizance of the bizarre instances of marital co-existences in the couples she met throught the story.
