#repost @shreyabookblogger • • • #sundaybookpost #boooreview: The One Who Swam With The Fishes by Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan Rating: 4.5*/5 I've always believed that Mahabharata was fought by great men but it was always women who were running the show, whether it is Satyavati or Draupadi. The story of the book goes back to the beginning of Mahabharata when in a quaint fishing village, Matsyagandhi was staying and was pondering over her life. Unwelcomed and alienated by her family, she used to dream of a different life. And her fate nodded in her direction and made her Satyavati, the queen of King Shantanu. Although I have read about Satyavati before, in The One Who Swam With The Fishes, Meenakshi Reddy has twisted the incidents in a beautiful way. The incidents in Satyavati's life which made her the queen, I read them with deep interest with a fresh take. A new life is given to the character by Meenakshi and now I'll be looking forward to read more about girls of the Mahabharata. Goes without saying, this one is a must read! ❤️ QOTD: Which is your favourite woman character from Mahabharata? Mine is Draupadi ❤️ @ig.reads @decemberschild @bookstagramfeatures @bookstagramindiafeatures @bookish.features @bestbookgrams @bookstr_ @bookriot @harpercollinsin @bookstagramretweet #bookreviews #bookblogger #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #bookstagramindia #booksofinstagram #instabooks #booklove #bookgasm #delhibookblogger #indianbookblogger #books
