Two Sisters from Mahabharat by Susheela Hegde

This book is a gem for anyone who loves Indian mythology and culture. It tells the story of two sisters, Kadru and Vinata, who married Sage Kashayapa and became mothers of a thousand nagas, and Aruna and Garuda in the epic Mahabharat.

The book explores their lives, choices, sacrifices and relationships with their sons in a captivating and insightful way. The author has done a remarkable job of bringing these ancient characters to life with her simple and elegant language.

The illustrations are beautiful and complement the story well. The book also provides some background information on Mahabharat and its significance in Indian literature and history.

I enjoyed reading this book immensely and learned a lot from it. It made me appreciate the complexity and richness of Mahabharat and its female characters. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Indian mythology, culture, or feminism.

Available on Amazon Kindle Edition.
