Trigger warning for suicide Padmavati is the tale of a Rajput princess Padmavati who went down in history for committing jauhar in the face of defeat by enemy so as to escape abuse The story gives mixed feelings as it revolves around jauhar committing suicide to protect one s honor and our societal ideals of purity But this review won t be a debate regarding thatI liked almost all the characters Padmavati comes off this naive child and I couldn t shake that image from my head Leelavati was a welcome surprise with her unabashed scheming and her cleverness Go flawed female characters Allaudin Khilji was depicted as conuerors are not a devil which is according to the historical accounts of him unlike a certain period film cough cough Rawal Ratan Singh just didn t leave an impression though he is the uintessential good guy You can probably see the pattern here I thought it was a happy coincidence but Anuja Chandramouli has this uniue talent of making her characters interesting by introducing a flawed morality in them And i am a sucker for thatThe setting was vividly described with much nuance and I enjoyed that I feel the plot dragged on but that is bound to happen when you write historical fiction with little artistic liberties A solid 35 stars An e copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review geoff buda ve ben you write historical fiction with little artistic liberties A solid 35 stars An e copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

Summary Rani Padmavati é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Rani Padmavati must rise to the demands of war and fight for everything she believes in This is the story of a remarkable woman who lived gently loved passionately and embraced her destiny with unmatched courag. I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge That myth is potent than history That dreams are powerful than facts That hope always triumphs over experience That laughter is the only cure for grief And I believe that love is stronger than death Robert Fulghum All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten Uncommon Thoughts on Common ThingsPadmavati aka Padmini is not a historical figure There is no historical account which proves that any such ueen existed This is a part of popular folklore of Rajasthan though The name of Padmavati is found in the book called Padmavat written by a Muslim poet Malik Mohammed Jayasi But myth or reality doesn t matter when the issue is of faith Sometimes myths are powerful than reality Because they give us courage and hope Padamavati is a symbol of resistance against barbaric Muslims and devotion to religion and husbands Alauddin kills his father in law and uncle in cold blood His wife Malika Jahan Daughter of Jalaluddin Khilji is eually cruel and is beaten by Khilji Khilji is ambitious and want to expand his empire in Rajasthan and Gujarat Rajputs know the ambition of Alauddin and try to put up a united front Ratan Sen of Chittor is married to Nagmati Padmavati is married to him in second marriage She is like an incarnation of Laxmi and they both love each other deeply Nagmati doesn t like it naturally and she nurse a grudge against Padma What happens afterwards is the storyThe book is a huge deviation from Padmavat and the pre conceived notions Rajputs are not as smart as folk tales and Allauddin is not a lustful looter He is ambitious and wants to be monarch He has no intention of raping Padmavati Language of book is simpler than Anuja s previous mythical books That makes it a uick read and it can be finished in one sitting The story is well paced and romantic scene between Ratan and Padmini are very well toldThat is the good part But there are some glaring mistakes logically as well as historically Religion was a rallying point in medieval period and Delhi sultans have clear agenda of expanding Islam by hook or crook Allauddin was a cruel looter who was a religious fanatic He broke many temples and plundered every city he invaded and conuered He killed Jalaluddin after looting Devgiri and it shows how ruthless he was Rajputs were no better either and they were a divided house Treachery was common and it helped Islam to spread But it was a Hindu Muslim conflict They broke looted temples and converted Hindus by force They raped Hindu women and took them in their harem In fact the Purdah came after Islamic invasion In the book it is shown that the conflict was only because of power lust and had no religious or lust angle which is totally wrong as per my understanding of history We cannot wish away the horrible things done by these plunderers only to buy peace If we want to have peace between Hindus and Muslims the right way is to admit the differences and atrocities carried out in the past As for Padmini and her Jauhar all I have to say that there is no evidence of Padmini in history But Jauhar was practiced The book shows that Nagmati is the prime culprit and both Padmini and Ratan knew that Alauddin has no intention of raping her That makes the logic of Jauhar untenable There are logical fallacies in the book and in the end I found out it a confused book Maybe Anuja was in two minds in trying to balance the rift between two communities and then showing Jauhar of women This is a paradox 3 5 starsPS A brief mention of Sanjay Leela Bhansali magnum opus Padmavati The movie is since then renamed Padmavat Jayasi book Karni sena a Rajput army has waged a war against the movie They has done most reprehensible act of attacking a school bus Though their method of brute force is wrong this shows the power of myths Maybe we should not try to rewrite history to suit present day reality We should accept the historical wrongs and take it forward from there rather than to wish away the things Holocaust never happened I guess

Summary Rani Padmavati é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Padmavati is the most beautiful ueen Chittor has ever had Everyone who sees her is enthralled by her grace and goodness When the greedy gaze of the Sultan ofDelhi Alauddin Khalji falls upon Chittor and its ueen. I would like to thank the author for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review I am giving the book a rating of 35This novel is a retelling of the legend of Rani Padmavati also known as Rani Padmini She was the wife of Rawal Ratan Singh the king of the Indian kingdom of Chittor Rani Padmavati was renowned for her mesmerizing beauty It is said that Alauddin Khalji the Sultan of Delhi had attacked Chittor driven by his desire to possess Rani Padmavati When the fall of Chittor was imminent Padmavati along with scores of other women had committed jauharthe Hindu custom of mass self immolation by women in parts of the Indian subcontinent to avoid capture enslavement and rape by any foreign invaders when facing certain defeat during a war There are many versions of her story However some historians refute the story of Rani Padmavati as a folktale The story starts with the murder of Jalaluddin Khalji the Sultan of Delhi and his entourage by his ambitious and ruthless son in law Alauddin Khalji The latter then ascends the throne of Delhi Then we move to meet our protagonist Padmavati The author s Padmavati is not just a beautiful woman but she has been endowed with high intelligence and generosity She became the favourite ueen of Rawal Ratan Singh and invited the envy and animosity of his other consorts Rawal Ratan Singh has been portrayed as a principled ruler who believed in justice and had a genuine concern for the welfare of his subjects His just nature would ultimately lead to rebellion by a faction of his army thereby weakening the defense of ChittorAlauddin Khalji though portrayed as a ruthless conueror is not without his principles as well The author posits that it was not his obsession with Padmavati but rather the wealth of Chittor that had made Alauddin invade the kingdomSome of the Rajput kings tried to build an alliance to counter Alauddin but due the gigantic ego and petty mindedness of the kings it never came to fruition Traitors driven by greed or to settle scores also made the task of foreign invaders much easier I loved the twist at the end though I did not find it very logicalIt is a decent story well written and interesting It has war massacres treachery betrayal conspiracies on one hand and bravery love honour and sacrifice on the other I have always enjoyed the author s writing and liked this one too One thing I have to say I found the writing to be much simpler in this book Usually the language in her other books is a bit complex I do not prefer books which use too many fancy words but I do like it when a book enriches my vocabularyI felt that the author has been a bit too lenient towards characters like Alauddin He was a very powerful king and a great military leader but he and his men had inflicted brutality on thousands of defenseless people as well Kings fought wars and soldiers died that was the norm in the olden days but his army not only killed but enslaved thousands of civiliansI believe the cover art could have been better Looking at it you would think that it a novel about someone s marriage a bit too glossy for my tastes The back cover art was actually nice thoughI don t know whether Rani Padmavati existed or she was a figment of some medieval poet s imagination But I do know that once upon a time a lot of innocent women had to die a horrific death because of the greed of power hungry kings Rani Padmavati might as well be considered as the representative of all these womenAnyway if you like historical fiction then you can give this book a try
