Publisher's Summary

At birth, she was named Meenakshi, the girl with beautiful eyes. But the world knew her as an evil, ugly and immoral seductress called Soorpanakha who had dared to fall in love with Lord Rama’s brother, Lakshmana. 

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.

Women amidst patriarchial justifications...

Very well drafted and narrated, this books is basically about the sorry state of affairs of women in Ayodhya, even when Ramrajya arrives (Ram becomes the ruler). Meenakshi (Sooprnrkha) is walking destitute after her brother is murdered, Sita is discarded from palace for being impure, a lower case lady is kicked in the streets by her own hustband - when these three meet for sometime in Ayodhya, they introspect and strike a small conversation. This book is about that insightful conversation, and how all three accept their destiny amidst patriarchial justifications....

Recommened, one should read to get a perspective!!
