History has been at large ‘His’ story. ‘Her’ story hasn’t received that due attention. Hence, Indic Academy has come up with Aryaa – An Anthology of Vedic women. And, the author of this article is one of the writers. This is an Anthology of women in India’s past, who shaped/reshaped the civilizational ethos for the good.
My story revolves around the famous character of Shakuntala. We usually see her story from Kalidasa’s angle; the famous love story of Dushyanta and Shakuntala. However, my story focuses on Shakuntala, the mother. After all, she was the mother of the man whose name our civilization draws: Bharatvarsha.
She was a wife, a mother, a queen-mother, friend, or anything she wished to be.
She protected the king, shaped an emperor, challenged a sage, etc.
A manifestation of eternally present Shakti, she was Aryaa.
