Indeed, ‘Karna’s Wife‘ by Kavita Kane is an eye-catching novel. Set in the backdrop of the Kurukshetra, this time we stand on the other side of the battle. True that we have been bought up listening to the stories of Mahabharata from Pandava’s point of view but this time, it’s different. With a unique perspective of Uruvi, a Kshatriya princess who chooses the sutaputra over Arjun at her swayamvar; the author Kavita Kane narrates an intriguing description of how Uruvi is a witness to the twists and turns of Karna’s fate; and how it is inextricably linked to divine design.
With careful choice of words, the story unfolds with the little princess who walks into Karna’s, (the unsung hero of Mahabharath) life. As she stands by him and counsels him all the time, his blind allegiance to Duryodhana seems to be beyond her power to change. A classic saga which narrates the events of Mahabharath with great detail and different perspective.
The conflict within her between her unfathomable love for Karna and his inconsiderate behavior towards Draupadi at the dice game in the palace of Hastinapur has been well portrayed. For all the mythogical readers, this book in retrospect to our profound learning gives a new dimension of thoughts about Karna, the unsung hero. His charm, valor, generosity have no bounds. This time, the battle is fought from the Kauravas point of view and how the events take a twist at the battle field with time.
