Well !! Knew the events of the Mahabharata, but reading them thro’ Panchali’s mind is a never before like experience..Kudos to Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni..
Every girl should read..
Some of her feelings can really be related too, the saas - bahu relationship or the wanting to be with some one you love at first sight , the relationship with her brother Dhri(Panchali’s brother) and the super nice and political image of Krishna - magically put down on paper.. Half way through the book and it keeps me yearning for more..
