Shakuntala, the Play of Memory Reviews
This is a poignant story of a woman of yesterdays. Shakuntala was not paid attention to in her childhood, as her mother is all focussed on her son. Shakuntala yearns to be learned like her brother who becomes a hindu saint, learning the scriptures. She gathers knowledge by talking and wandering in the mountainous regions of India. She marries Srijan, who is a caring husband. Over the years, being childless she feels or is made to feel inadequate. Her husband who is a merchant travels far, while Shakuntala remains in the village desolate and lonely. In one of his sojourns Srijan brings back a woman from the far east, and the relationship between Shakuntala and Srijan strains. Shakuntala becomes pregnant and in the pretext of offering prayers to a remote temple in the plains, leaves her village. She meets Nearchus a greek merchant and runs away to Kashi with him. They love each other very dearly, but slowly Shakuntala wears out of this relationship too and leaves him and travels alone to the other bank of the ganges, while she is full term pregnant. While she is truly alone and free she is struck by tragedy and dies leaving a male child to be looked after by monks. She and the twin female child die.The story is written with extra-ordinary passion and really is un-put-downable. But the tragic end seems rather disappointing, as if to point out that if women stray away from what is expected of them their are bound face failure. It would have been a sure success of the spirit of womanhood had she lived on, to experience the joys motherhood and nurtured her children with her values that she thought was right, learnt the hard way from her own experiences. It felt sad that she did not hand down her experiences and leave it for people who lived after her.
This is an interesting read with a heavy dose of feminism buoyed by a female protagonist. The characters mentioned and the foreplay that goes around is bound to raise a like-me factor across each of the readers. Similar to an often used phrase: Time was contracting and expanding (mentioned in the book), it is a difficult as well as an easy read. It is light as well as heavy. There is a beauty of literature in few chapters where certain situations, chapters and items are described beautifully.
The book is very well written and takes you to the pre-Mughal times of India. It is a haunting and tragic tale of a young woman who wants to get out of her small village and see the world, but is restricted by societal norms.
A very nice read...
