Book Description

The Flaming Tresses of Draupadi

‘Sri Krishna, I am being put through an ordeal, the foolish
Acts of your cousins are burning me up, save from these wicked ones
Who are stripping me of the cloth I am clad in!
You alone can save me, the saviour of the helpless; If I lose my honour, can I stay alive?’
She vowed to never tie her hair till the day the Pandavas avenged the humiliation she had been subjected to by the Kauravas. That her hair would be left untamed and wild till the day Bhima would kill Dushyasana and smear her hair with his blood.
This is an epic poem narrating the saga of one of the most important, intriguing and complex female characters of Hindu mythology—Draupadi of Mahabharata.The Flaming Tresses of Draupadi traces the life and journey of Draupadi from her birth from the sacrificial fire—whereupon she was named ‘Yagnaseni’—to her marriage with the five brothers, to losing her fortune and honour to the Kauravas in a gamble, the deep friendship she forged with Lord Krishna and finally the culmination of the great war of Kurukshetra.In this epic poem of hatred, love, victory and defeat, Draupadi emerges as a strong female character that ultimately brought to retribution all those who had done injustice to her.
