What I searched all these years for myself-and I only found Ahalya, the woman I was supposed to
be born as: unblemished, without any faults. I had no hala in me, no sin, no crime, no guilt. What
I had done was to respond to the call of life within me…’-Ahalya.
Created by Brahma; married to one of the greatest rishis of all time; desired by the king of gods,
Indra. A woman maligned and cursed. But who was Ahalya? What did she want? Did she have
ambitions and desires?
In this sparkling retelling of the well-known legend, bestselling author Kavita Kan? draws out the
voice of a character that lacked one-even before she was turned to stone.
