Lanka’s Princess Author: Kavita Kane Publication: Rupa Publications India Pages: 280 Price: Rs 295 Like the space-time it is set in Hindu mythology too seems to trace a circular course — in fiction Its once unmitigated villains are being re-evaluated their motives and actions re-assessed and epics retold from their perspective But while the great “demon” king the Pandavas’ unknown brother and “jealous” cousin have had their say what about a calamitous woman long-perceived as a cause of the war that destroyed Lanka But it was time that Surpanakha got her chance to tell her story of repression rage revenge — and eventual redemption We have long known her as Ravana’s younger sister a “wanton” asura whose advances to Ram and Lakshman the exiled princes of Ayodhya were spurned and earned her horrific mutilation from Lakshman’s swift sword Her subsequent complaint to her brother set in motion a chain of events that led to the death of almost every male relative But do we know anything else about her — her past her thoughts her future Remedying the deficiency is author Kavita Kane who has long been trying to give the overshadowed women — wives mothers and sisters — of the great mythological epics a voice — and their due And after Karna’s wife Uruvi Sita’s sister Urmila and the apsara Menaka it is time for Meenakshi the youngest child and only daughter of sage Vishravas and asura princess Kaikesi It was her mother who named her Surpanakha because of long sharp nails and equally sharp and destructive temper Meenakshi’s story cannot however be seen in isolation from her family especially her brothers the powerful and ambitious Ravana the slow but solid (and unexpectedly perspicacious) Kumbha and the righteous Vibhisana and the growing tensions between her parents and her father and eldest son But this is not where Kane begins her tale which starts in another later age where a young prince raised as a cowherd returns to Mathura to reclaim his heritage Among the crowd Krishna immediately identifies an old hunchbacked woman who makes her living by making sandalwood paste as an “acquaintance” from an earlier life and approaches her She is discomfitted by the attention of “an eerily familiar” but unrecognisable interlocutor who seeks a favour and promises to return He does after fulfilling his primary mission restores to proper form and reminds her of her previous life It is then a flashback to the hermitage of Vishravas as she is being born and her mother’s disappointment at giving birth to a daughter From then we follow the childhood of Meenakshi and her elder siblings which give us insights into their latter more-known selves It also through their examples shows us how some human traits and social issues have been part of our lives in the ages And before the events segue into those we know as the Ramayana we learn how Meenakshi’s bids at happiness in her trying life fail and what an elaborate revenge she plans and implements — though there are times when she balks at the cost it demands Her campaign doesn’t end on the battlefields of Lanka but continues well into Ram’s Ayodhya though she finds herself unable to carry out the final part of her revenge due to the unexpected reactions from her prospective victims It is then she finally understands the patterns of her life and fate The narrative returns to Mathura where Krishna who has comforted her with her eventual redemption foresees but forbears to tell her — her future (setting the stage for the next book) But Kane’s fourth book is not just a mere retelling of the epic from the viewpoint of a significant but minor character and providing more space to the likes of Ravana’s mother wife Mandodari and brothers as well as Sita though it is her sister who has a more vital role It also may not lead us to view Surpanakha more sympathetically (though we can understand her) but shows how epics are not about the struggles between “good” and “evil” but of and between humans of their choices aspirations their different social systems and outlooks We read them not to find god but to know more about ourselves For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top
