Ms Draupadi Kuru: After the Pandavas
by Trisha Das
Draupadi is bored of Heaven. Yes, it’s beautiful and perfumed and perfect, but it’s been a few thousand years of the same thing every day. There is only one way to escape: Krishna. He can never say no to her. So she gets her gang of women together Amba, Kunti and frenemy Gandhari and off they go to New Delhi, on Earth, where so much has changed and so much remains the same. Kunti grows attached to a street urchin, Draupadi lands up in a television studio, Amba finds the one thing that could never be hers in heaven and Gandhari… well, she’s got something to say about all of it. Thirty days are all they have for their adventure and time’s running out fast. But can they really leave when the party’s just started?
