Blurb:This story has Historical, Political & Social aspects. “JAIRAJGARH,” The Grand Empire of Rajputana, whose King is a great warrior, and a devious politician. He didn’t limit his devious politics to only the royal throne, but extended it to his personal relationships.

This ardent devotee of Lord Shiva, turned her pain into power and despite being a stepmother of a Eunuch Prince, Meeramani has not only loved, but has safeguarded the prince from his own father and beyond everyone’s imagination, she has tried to prepare him to take over the Royal Throne while fighting against all odds of society. A ‘Eunuch’ Prince, whose responsibility is to earn rights for the entire Eunuch community. A Political and Social war between the ‘King’& his ‘Queen’. Who will win and claim the Royal Throne Will Queen Meeramani convert the Royal Throne into “The Divine Throne”? To unravel the truth you have to be a part of the journey of Queen Meeramani’s struggle.
The Divine Throne Of Maharani Meeramani is a historical and social fiction by Meenakshi Verma. The story is set in historical period where the author tried best of her imagination to narrate everything accordingly. The main thing revolves here is the social cause that author wanted to spread is the rights of eunuch community. So the Prince is a eunuch and how he fights for the rights of their community and how many Maharani Meeramani safeguards the Prince.
On a personal front I really liked the imagination setup of author as its not easy to write down a historical fiction but ya it lacked few basic research as we have landed in the era of fictions like bahubali.
But trust me the story has enough strength to make you finish it in one read I don’t want to spoiler the climax of it.
Language is simple and as hindi version is available too so you can go for that too but narration is excellent as narration of such a book is always a tough task. The theme looks really solid with amalgamation of historical and social fiction in one. A few grammatical errors here and there more work should have been done on editing.
The plot is unique and thrilling and I really appreciate author for bravery that she showed for writing an unique story. The cover looks interesting at first I felt as if it’s relevant to the queen of bahubali.
So who can read it?
The one who loves to read historical fiction or social fiction can surely go for it. But who hates the story of prince and princess and kingdoms so it’s story for every booknerd out here.
Overall its 4/5.
