Draupadi The Fire-Born Princess by Saraswati Nagpal


Draupadi The Fire-Born Princess by Saraswati Nagpal

A mysterious prophecy resounds, and the bewitchingly beautiful princess Draupadi arises from the sacred fire in Panchala. Draupadi is in love with Arjuna, the Pandava prince. But fate weaves a strange story and Draupadi finds herself wedded to five men - Arjuna and his four Pandava brothers. Draupadi's life is complicated further by the Kauravas -- her husbands' wicked cousins-- who try everything in their power to harm her and the Pandavas. The fiery princess Draupadi's terrible destiny begins to unfold. From majestic queen with five warrior husbands, she is reduced to a servant girl. Evil waits at every corner, and a great war looms ahead. Her only comfort is her friend, Krishna. Will the impulsive Draupadi brave the humiliation destiny has written for her? Must she lose everything she has loved? Adapted from the ancient Indian epic, the Mahabharata, this is the story of an astonishingly outspoken woman, who is abandoned at every turn, and forced to make the difficult choice between revenge and compassion.

About the Author

Born in 1980 in Dubai, Saraswati Nagpal was an early reader. She swiftly plunged into the world of legendary gods and goddesses, living the fantastic stories in her head, and believing in them with the complete faith of a child. She wrote plays, stories, and poetry through high school and college. A keen student of Indian classical dance and music, Saraswati has been teaching young children for five years and especially enjoys helping them weave their own stories through words, music, and movement. Her dream is to write many magical epics and is working hard at it.
