Interesting start with the introduction to the origin of "Arthanari", innate feminine nature delicate but powerful enough to create the planets. Where is this island on the lake? I found a village in northern Karnataka with the name Karki and an ethnic group called Karki Rajputs in Utharakand.
Utharakand seems right but wondering where this beautiful island on the lake would be!
In chapter 2, the description of the stage, dance drama, audience, the curtains, lamps, dance poses, ambience of the palace etc are so real that I felt as if I am watching it and not reading about it.
Still trying to figure out the reasoning behind the first chapter. Once again, another amazing episode in the making. Thank you.
