MOHINI – THE ENCHANTRESS : A BEAUTIFUL ODE TO THE GODDESS OF BEAUTY AND FERTILITY
Namrata talks about Anuja Chandramouli’s latest book, Mohini: The Enchantress ( August, 2020) calling it an attempt to paint a fresh image of Mohini in the reader’s mind.
“Elusive as a fragment of a forgotten dream, fragile as a figment from fantasy, Mohini is perfection made possible.Anuja Chandramouli
Distilled from the essence of Vishnu, Mohini the Enchantress is a part of him and yet she revels in the autonomy and extraordinary powers of beauty, magic and enchantment that are hers to wield. She is loved and desired by all in existence and yet, she is elusive tantalizing temptress, traipsing her way across the topsy-turvy terrain of fable and myth.”
Anuja Chandramouli’s Mohini is a beautiful ode to the Goddess of Beauty and Fertility. Considered to be the only female avatar of Vishnu, created by Vishnu and Shakti, this book traces her life through sands of time.
As an author Anuja Chandramouli has been known to explore lesser known aspects of different mythological characters and bring their stories to the readers. Starting with Arjuna, she went to write some stellar best-selling epics on Ganga, Shakti, Kartikeya, Kama Deva etc. Her debut novel, Arjuna: Saga of a Pandava Warrior-Prince, was named as one of the top five books in the Indian Writing category by Amazon India in 2013.
