6. Ajaya: Rise of Kali

To see good in bad and bad in good” This novel perfectly imitates the quote.

What if the great Mahabharat war was portrayed from Kauravas’ side? What if the Pandavas were wrong too? What if the Kauravas were tagged villain just because they lost the war?

The novel dives into the rebellious writing of Anand Neelkanth showcasing Suyodhan’s( Dur-yodhan) point of view. The story begins when Bheesma abducts Gandhari by killing her father.

Her brother shakuni pledges to destroy Hastinapur. The dice switched sides and the Pandavas here are the antagonists and the Kauravas are the protagonist of the story.

If you could behold a few criticisms and question all the acts of Pandavas and Krishna, then I vouch for it.

The tale of one of the Pancha Kanyas from Purana is said to be believed that reciting their names could favor the women of any generation. 

The Pancha kanyas as Sati, Kunti, Ahalya, Mandodari, and Sabitri ach turned into an epic tale depicted from the perspective of each feminine.  The Puranas exclaim the tale of Ahalya her birth in the hands of Brahma her marriage to Rishi Gautam and her curse of indulging in a relationship with Indra.

But the truth prevails as the narration depicts the reason and the wise woman lurking behind her curtain of infidelity. This series adds meaning to the tales which have been repeated in the past and misinterpreted.
