    1. Could have benefitted from a translators introduction. The first two stories are told form the perspective of uttara and kunti, as they come to grips with the aftermath of the war. The two women interact with dasis and nishadin, and these interactions reveal the sterility and the barbarity of the rajavritta. Because these stories are told form the POV of these two queens, the dasis and nishadin who appear in the stories arent fully realized characters. But their humanity is never in question -- [...]


    2. The author has attempted to explore some of the unexplored dimensions of Mahabharat war. The book tries to differentiate the lives of people who are perceived are knowledgeable,educated,civilized and the people who are common man with simple lifestyles. The first story revolves around the life of Uttara, widowed of Abhimanyu and contrasts it with five widows of common farmers. The life style inside the palace and that of a farmer is compared in a lucid style. The second story reveals how Kunti a [...]


    3. Three affecting yet potent stories that explore the aftermath of a savage war through the eyes of the ignored and marginalized.


    4. What happened after the Battle of Kurukshetra? Three stories to give you a feel of the society as it existed at that time and as it was left after the Great war. Kunti and the Nishadin that points out her real sin. Princess Uttara and the 5 women who stay with her to help her with her grief. And the story of Yuyutsu and his mother after the war (Yuyutsu was the son born to Dhritrashtra and a palace maid).


    5. Originally written in Bengali by Mahashweta Devi, this is a short collection of stories set in the time of the Mahabharat, which makes the reader think about those victims of the war that every one has forgotten – women. Read the full review here: indiabookstore/bookish


    6. Memorable line:"e eerie wailing that resounds across the horizon, that flows like a swollen river of grief, waves of sorrow swelling and fading in the night. Like a tide, receding into the darkness."


    7. Mahasweta Devi has gone where few have gone before. In the great saga where light triumphs over dark and Dharma wins; did anyone look up the lot of women?She does and she does it well.Read On!
