Book Description

About the Book

THE UNTOLD STORY OF GODDESS SARASVATI Sarasvati, the feminine force worshipped as the goddess of art, music and knowledge, is a household name, yet we barely know much about Her. She is known as the lost river and seen as the singular goddess, never as part of a couple, such as Shiva-Parvati or Lakshmi-Narayan. In Sarasvati's Gift, Kavita Kané brings to light Sarasvati's story, told in the voices of nameless celestials, powerful gods and lesser mortals. The book explores Her relationship with Her Creator, Brahma, and their unusual marriage-a union of fiercely independent minds, making them the most non-conforming and unconventional of the Triumvirate couples. As these peripheral figures and silent catalysts take centre stage, we get a glimpse of an extraordinary woman and Her remarkable story, obscured and buried under myths and legends.

About the Author

Kavita Kané is the bestselling author of six novels. Today, she is considered a revolutionary force in Indian writing, mainly because she has brought in feminism where it is most needed-in mythology.

All her seven novels are based on lesser-known women in Indian mythology—Karna's Wife (2013); Sita's Sister (2014); Menaka's Choice (2015); Lanka's Princess (2016); The Fisher Queen's Dynasty (2017); Ahalya's Awakening (2019); and now Sarasvati's Gift.

For one who confesses that the only skill she knows is writing, her literary journey expectedly began as a journalist, with twin post-graduate degrees in English literature and mass communication and journalism from the University of Pune. With a career spanning two decades in Magna Publishing and DNA, and as assistant editor in the Times of India, she now devotes her time to being a full-time author.

Passionate about theatre, cinema and the arts, she is also a columnist, a screenplay writer and a motivational speaker, who has given several talks across the country's educational and research institutes, corporate and management forums and literary festivals.

Born in Mumbai, with a childhood spent largely in Patna and Delhi, she lives in Pune with Prakash, her mariner husband, two daughters, Kimaya and Amiya, two dogs, Chic and Beau, and Cotton, a not-so-curious cat.
