Book Description

About The Book

Mondodari is a mythological novel based on Ravana's wife. Probably Assamese version of Mandodari is the first novel on Rakshas's dynasty written in any of the languages of India. The author is quite successful in expressing Mandodri's mixed feelings, sometimes proud of being the daughter-in-law of Rakshasa's dynasty and sometimes her sadness and helplessness being Ravana's wife. Although Mandodari loved and respected her husband much, yet she was against certain deeds performed Ravana. She couldn't accept Ravana's unsocial activities which he considered as observable conduct of Rakshasa religion of acquiring good things forcibly. Mandodari supported Bibhishana. But she could not agree to his surrender to Rama even though Bibhishana was badly insulted by his brother Ravana. Mandodari felt that Ravana had many good qualities except his anger, instability, pride and weakness for women. Otherwise, there would have been no other more eminent person than Ravana in the three worlds.
