Abstract:

The present paper focuses on the projection of Indian women of Eastern world fighting for their faith in fiction with special insight to Kavita Kane’s “The Fisher Queen’s Dynasty”- a story of not-so-great portrayed mythological woman character Mastyagandha- The Queen of Hastinapur. Kane depiction of Satyavathi is admirable as she is able to bring out concoction of beauty, ambition, vulnerable and sorrow in her character. Author exposes the raw ambition of character in discourse brings out Satyavathi character through the words “It is better to I use my ambition wisely. I would rather make use of it and get benefits from it, as I have done it to Rishi Parashar”. Kavita Kane is one of the notable Indian authors, who had created tremor with her characters inspired from Mythology. The inquisition of least praised characters of mythology especially women who were marginalized, prejudice, or misrepresented. Providing cathartic voice to these victimized women (as projected in her writings) of patriarchal traditions. All the characters of Kane punctured the patriarchal expression by raising the voices of these woman characters of mythology. Her books are a beautiful exploration of human contradictions.

Kavita Kane excels in this art of persuasion with her exquisite characterization and gripping narrative. The success of her six novels which are purely based on myth is a testimony for this.
