Draupadi is bored of Heaven. Yes, it’s beautiful and perfumed and perfect, but it’s been a few thousand years of the same thing every day. There is only one way to escape: Krishna. He can never say no to her. So she gets her gang of women together – Amba, Kunti and frenemy Gandhari – and off they go to New Delhi, on Earth, where so much has changed and so much remains the same. Kunti grows attached to a street urchin, Draupadi lands up in a television studio, Amba finds the one thing that could never be hers in heaven and Gandhari... well, she's got something to say about all of it. Thirty days are all they have for their adventure and time’s running out fast. But can they really leave when the party’s just started? Draupadi is bored of Heaven.

Review

The idea could have easily floundered in execution, but the book more than lives up to its promising blurb. Das writes with great wit and imagination and the adventures of the feisty bunch will make you laugh out loud.– Hindustan Times

The book, though a lively romp, is also a commentary on how we perceive our role models in mythology. Draupadi serves as her own, and every diverse woman’s inner monologue. – India Today

A fun deviation from the serious for fans of mythology, Ms Draupadi Kuru is a refreshing take on the feisty queen.– The Telegraph

An electrifying, fast-paced narrative that truly entertains. – Hello! Magazine

Trisha Das’ Draupadi is a defiant, courageous woman fully in control of her body and mind. – DailyO

One of the modern writers to consider who are questioning, portraying, and contributing a significant amount to the conversation about who is a strong woman and what can be construed as woman power. – Jaya Bhattacharji Rose
