    Loved the book The Kaunteyas. A very well presented story.

    Got to know more about Kunti’s life, her feelings on being given away for adoption and her struggle to deal with her husband’s second wife so soon after her own marriage.

    I felt young Kunti’s pain and the fight within herself upon the compulsión to give her baby away because of societal norms and then the continuing pain of having to keep that child a secret from her family and the world.

    Thanks for this book. Please let me know when you write about more Mahabharata women.
