“The Importance of Being Draupadi” by Mr. Krishnan Rangaraju, is a radical take on the Mahabharatha, particularly the life and character of Draupadi and her interaction with Vasuki and Karna. It combines the conventional narrative afforded by Vyasa’s epic, and a very unique telling of the Bheel tribals. The Book includes a foreword, by Professor N. Manu Chakravarthy, and an analysis by Mr. K. V. Akshara.
