Knowing only the outline story of the Mahabharatha, and nothing really about Panchali in the story, it was an eye opener of the great Epic for me, the first time.
I was drawn so deeply into it; I could relate to it as a woman going on an emotional ride ,as she struggles with her relationships.
A lot of lines spoke to me ( I usually underline them as I read them to go back and read them again)and sometime in between, it suddenly dawned upon me, that there is a lot of me in Chitra's portrayal of Panchali's character .... pride, anger, resentment, anxiety, longing to belong somewhere ,regrets and how circumstances shape a person.
Would totally recommend it , if you haven't read it before.
