Blurb: In pre-colonial India, a land of empires ruled by the Simhas, the Ashwas, the Chandras, the Suryas and the Meenas, a beautiful young girl Madhumati blossoms and learns music, dance and various other arts from her gurus. She is not alone in her journey, for she is blessed with learned sisters who are skilled in the various arts of magic, illusions and lovemaking. When Sibu, the charismatic dancer, dances his way into their hearts, a battle ensues to win over his love. Will Madhumati succeed in winning her love? As the story unfolds, a parallel tale entwines with the saga, the story of the majestic Pashupati, his passion for Ritu and her sisters, and their trials and tribulations as they try to placate the enigmatic Prakriti. Lose yourself in the torrents of antiquity, on an enigmatic epic journey into the past to witness how creation itself unwinds, time ages and love germinates.
Madhumati is one of the finest writing work that I have read in terms of vocabulary and poetic expressions. If anything that we can call as beautiful writing work than this is the the book you can surely go for.
Well I really loved the plot as going back into history to create a beautiful plot isn’t that easy.
The narration is as beautiful with poetry so beautifully immersed in it.
Characters are also created amazingly and to write such a beautiful mythological fiction is a great work.
Overall I will rate it 4.5*/5*.
Verdict: Madhumati is a beautiful description of historical fictional plot by Anshuman rai.
