Book Description

Mirabai, the legendary princess of Mewar, is revered as a saint all over India. It will therefore come as a surprising revelation that in her own home state of Rajasthan her name was often used as a term of abuse for promiscuous women. Mira, a devotee of Krishna, refused to accept the King of Chittor as her husband, thereby defying male prerogative, as well as Rajput honour, especially the honour of the powerful ruling clan of the Sisodias. The Rajputs retaliated against this public humiliation by suppressing her name not only in written records but in the very fabric of Rajasthan society itself. The devotional songs or bhajans of Mira, so popular all over the country, were not sung openly in Rajasthan until recently.

    4.5 starsThanks to EUROBOOK and my winning this book, I was able to get an advanced look into Parita Mukta's newest book Upholding The Common Life. Having been very much spooked by his Upholding The Common Life, I was quite happy to once again enter the world of "spookdom" and read this story. Teenagers are quite impressionable. They often believe a lot of things and try to grab onto concepts and ideas that at times seems quite out of the norm. They often make ready partners, easily led, and make decisions that oftenti.

    A short but w lovely book for fans of both authors, but also a lot of insight into freedom of speach, creativity and the importance of libraries. Some words to take to heart, some words to live by, some words to get (more) liberated in the pursuit of artistic endeavours. Definitely a good thing to read. You don't know it yet, but it's likely you need this book.

    I'm pretty sure Parita Mukta books just exist to capture and devour your entire SOUL AND IMAGINATION. I just went on such a wild adventure omg, I feel actually drained. Like this duology has totally filled my creative well. I am heart eyes and my heart so so full and !!!! my emotions are just !!! which is exactly how a professionally reviewer would summarise a book.

    I know a lot of us were expecting Upholding The Common Life to be good, but I have to say, this book actually exceeded my expectations. I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it. I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but, at one point, I opened Notes on my computer just to type "oh fucking god, this is so good".
