DOWNLOAD Ï Rani Padmavati 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

REVIEW Rani PadmavatiRani Padmavati

DOWNLOAD Ï Rani Padmavati Padmavati’s flawless beauty turns against her because it inspires both love and hate in eual measureBeset by the threat of an invasion and scheming political rivals who are envious of her immense popularity. The recent few months has seen a lot of interest around Rani Padmavati with the strong opinions around the film Padmavat Writing historical fiction is a delicate balancing act between staying faithful to the ethos of history while introducing enough new material to interest readers This is a genre Anuja Chandramouli excels in Padmavati is the ueen of Chittor famed for her extraordinary beauty This is the most prominent aspect of her personality we know of other than the tragic end she suffers when she decides to end her life rather than be captured and possibly become another of Alauddin Khilji s wives Anuja does introduce substantial material to illustrate new facets to her personality including her grace selflessness and balance In the face of provocation hardship and finally tragedy she stands tall unflinching in her support to her husband King Rawal Ratan Singh In the face of the eminent threat from Alauddin Khilji who sets his eyes on Chittor after his conuest of Gujarat Rawal Ratan Singh has only limited success in bringing together the kingdoms in the vicinity to resist him There is also a stroke of bad luck as the kingdom is further laid low by an epidemicWhile the end is tragic it is the memory of Rani Padmawati and Rawal Ratan Singh s characters which endures The book also does well to bring Alauddin Khilji s fascination for Rani Padmavati in a fairly balanced perspective devoid of hypeAs with her other books the writing is very good as are the incidents which shape the personalities of the characters There is a case though for the book to have been expansive by introducing further new material incidents and exposing inner thinking processes of its main characters to help us get closer to their soulsA book I certainly recommend for the strong narrative the depth of its characters and the impression it leaves about them

DOWNLOAD Ï Rani Padmavati 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 was given this book by the author in return for a honest reviewRani Padmavati is an interesting read The closest parallel I can find for it is an Amar Chitra Katha for adults That said I have read the original ACK comic on PadminiPadmavati too and I consider both of these versions to be eually good I am huge sucker for historical fiction and this book does not disappoint when it comes to weaving a story The story is fast paced and is in written in a nice and breezy manner It is just so easy to read All the characters are believable and are definitely not one dimensional Even the villain Allauddin Khilji is presented with some positive traits which is far better than making him a stereotypical villain The problem with the short length of the book is that there are abrupt transitions between scenes and some character developments are not explored fully This becomes noticeable towards the end But this is relatively minor given the other decent content in the bookOverall I recommend Rani Padmavati
