We make love and leave. That is our motto. Live by it, Menaka or you shall suffer untold, unnecessary grief. Born during the churning of the ocean, Menaka is the most beautiful of all the apsaras in the world, with quick intelligence and innate talent. However, she craves for the one thing she can never have - family. Elsewhere, after severe austerities, a man, now blessed with the name Vishwamitra, challenges the gods and dares to create another heaven. Fearing his growing powers, Indra, the king of gods, decides to put a stop to his ambitions by making Menaka seduce him. What will happen when Menaka and Vishwamitra meet each other? Will Menaka finally find what she really wished for? Or will she again be forced to surrender to her destiny? Find out in this fascinating portrait of one of the most enduring mythological figures.
This is untold tale of the famous apsara, Menaka, and equally famous Rishi Vishwamitra
The novel is not just a love story of Menaka and Vishwamitra, but also a story of a woman, restricted by her designated role, and fighting for her dreams in a male-dominated world and the story of man defying all odds to achieve his goal and fulfil his destiny
The writing is lucid and narration is gripping
