In this fascinating story, Ravana’s Sister (Meenakshi), best-selling author of The Rise of Sivagami, Anand Neelakantan, tells the poignant tale of a woman whose ears, nose and breasts are chopped off by a man as punishment for seeking love from a superior being. Overturning what popular myths and legends may have endorsed about Meenakshi, aka Soorpanakha, this story is about every woman who may have lost in love but gained much more from life in general.

A very unique and interesting story by Anand Neelakantan. Very nice imaginative plot. Was very interesting listening to it.
Would’ve enjoyed it even more if the narration was a bit dramatised.
But overall, it is a very interesting book.

Primarily, it is not a book, just an extract from it.
I found the narration very lacklustre. No dramatic value. It was very dry.
Didn’t enjoy it.

An amazing book with a great collection of stories to have in ones collection. The charm and charisma of Mr. Sherlock Holmes has mesmerised us for years. The stories are well told, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle does justice to each and every story.
The narration by Mr. Stephen Fry is equally amazing. He does justice to each and every story with his amazing story telling ability.
Enjoyed every minute of these amazing books.
Thank you amazon for giving us a chance to enjoy the same.
