– that I finished last week….
I couldn’t find ‘The Historian’ or ‘The white tiger’ in the book store near my place. But I happened to come across the title ‘Cuckold’ which sounded rather controversial. And then I saw who the writer was! Kiran Nagarkar has an impressive profile and I expected nothing less than brilliant despite the scandulous name for his book. I was not dissappointed. I loved the way he paints the picture of the otherwise (historically) invisible (atleast for the masses) husband of Saint Meerabai. It also helped in dispelling a few myths about the saint herself. I would recommend to anyone who has interest in Indian history and the glories associated with saints and warriors.
