About The Book Karna's Wife: The Outcast's Queen is a splendid tale of Karna, the unsung hero of Mahabharata, told from the perspective of his wife Uruvi. This book renders a unique view of karna's life as never seen before. The story is written in the genre of magic realism, retelling the classic story of Karna from a different angle. The novel begins with an accomplished kshatriya princess, Uruvi, falling in love with Karna-a sutaputra-and choosing him over Arjun. Stoking the anger of many, Uruvi must now face the social implications of her marriage and also use her love and intelligence to be accepted by her husband Karna and his family. Even though Uruvi secures a prime place in the life of Karna, giving counseling and guidance to him, his devotion to Duryodhana is beyond her ability to change. Being a queen for an outcast-Karna, Uruvi faces a lot of struggles. Amidst all her hardships, she stands firmly on Karna's side, giving him a great support, even when the whole world turned against him due to his misfortunes and fate. The essence of the story lies in the representation of Karna during the Kurukshetra war between Pandavas and kauravas. Karna's loyalty with his guru Duryodhana, his guru's love for his disciple, Karna's birth mystery are some of the themes explored in the book. The book is about Karna, but only told wholly from his wife's eyes. Karna's Wife: The Outcast's Queen came as a surprise to readers who are familiar with the story of Mahabharata. This refreshing tale of Karna makes an impact to the readers on his tragic and virtuous life. The edition is published in paperback, on 11th August, 2013. Key Features This book tells the story of Karna from the eyes of his devoted wife Uruvi. The book is well received for its unique way of retelling the classic story of Mahabharata.
