Draupadi waved her hands wildly as she inched closer to Kunti, her shrill voice resounding off the walls, 'I would rather jump into the river and drown myself. At least I would die a princess, not a prostitute.' Was Princess Draupadi in love even as her marriage to another man was being orchestrated? Did the great statesman Bhishma make a shameful admission as he lay dying on the battlefield of Kurukshetra? Did Queen Gandhari cause the death of her husband Dhritarashtra and sister-in-law Kunti?
