Karnas Wife: The Outcasts Queen tells the remarkable tale of Karna, the unsung hero of the Mahabharata, from the eyes of the woman who loved him, taking his storey to the reader from a special perspective. An exalted Kshatriya princess is compelled to marry a warrior who is not as high in rank as she. Persuaded to choose a lesser warrior by lust, she has to learn to play the role befitting a Kshatriya woman by not only appealing to her husband and kin, but by training them on the art of politics. Though she would always be there for her husband, a counsellor could not alter the way Lord Krishna's son was looking at his father. The storey of the blind princess and the demigod Karna unfolds against the history of the battle between the Pandavas and Duryodhana. As events cause tension on the great war of Mahabharata, Uruvi is a witness to Uruvi's chain of events that lead to Vivasana's fate. Also, Uruvi notices how Vivasana's destiny is connected with the events of Mahabharata. A well-written and illustrated fun-filled tale from the pages of the Mahabharata, Karnasht: the Outcasts Queen, brings the characters alive in all their glory.
In the "Karna Purana", the epic tale of the battle between good and bad, (Kaurava and Pandava), the uncelebrated hero Karna from the eyes of Urvi, a female character present throughout the book about her love for Arjuna and animosity for the super arrogant and anti dharma Karna, the poet, narrates the storey of the unsung hero Karna from the eyes of a lesser-know woman
The book provides a fascinating insight on the history of the legend. Published in the genre of magic realism, the novel represents different elements of the essence of Karna. Her storey highlights themes like his unquestionable devotion for Kuru's Duryodhana who has an unconditional affection towards the former. These ghosts of Karna's history and the mystery around his birth are some of the themes that Kane builds her novel around.
The outspoken and ambitious Princess Urvi falls in love with the misunderstood and chivalrous Emof Karna. Despite the shock of the result, Ashwani prefers Karna over Arjun and faces public anger. Why Urvi's sham as the most popular girl in her class has come back to haunt her finds us between the societal consequences of her act of rebellion, and her endeavours to win affection and support from her husband.
Urvi quickly secures a central role in Karna's life as a friend, counsellor and confidante. There are a few things that Bapa battles, such as his ghosts. Nevertheless, she is still by his side, helping him in all his misfortunes and hardships. As Karna’s wife, the outcast’s queen, shows a refreshing facet of the battle of Kurukshetra and how the outcast rose above his destiny to be forever regarded as ‘Daata Karna’.
