Draupadi is a wonder woman in the history of literature. She is undoubtedly the central character in Mahabharata. Other than the Draupadi we find in Vyasa’s Mahabharata – in all Folk Mahabharatas –Draupadi is a powerful woman with powerful sexuality.

    A disgusting article. ...Mahabharata is a great Indian History by Veda Vyas. .. It doesn't not matter who believe or not . In this Mahabharata Draupadi is a central female character and an ideal women .... If we intentionally want to see her in a bad angle then nobody makes it good. Why the people don't accept the fact .. In our religion carry a deep inner meaning this is not a joke ....(India is a civilized country why we accept the Tribal Mahabharata in the present time.)otherwise Devi Bhagavad Purana has a great inner meanings.This book says The Goddess Kali incarnated as Lord Shri Krishna and The God Shiva incarnated as The Radha,and here Draupadi is a part of a Lord Shri Krishna. Where genders are getting mixed up ,there Rape is meaningless. We have so many Puranas those lots of point of view ,we don't take all of those our aim all together.) As an Indian and a 21st century woman ( in human genetics), I requested to all of Indians that please don't forget our own culture and... More > society, don't make our women down ,please give them respect ..This type of E book article does not refresh our mind and our personality even not society. . I request the author :Indrajit Bandyopadhyay, Sir please doesn't make this type of story. I know you are a good author and a respectable person, I don't hope this from you. An author have a great power to make a bright society by his/her pen. Thank you...< Less
