Dr Manju Kumari K

It depicts the picturisation of Draupadi in the postmodern era with regard to the prominent writer Chitra Bannerji?s novel, The Palace of Illusions. This article traces the incidents experienced by the protagonist, Draupadi in the chronological manner. The physiognomies of the protagonist undergo transformation reflecting the technique of bildungsroman where Draupadi emerges as a new woman towards the end of the novel that highlights the mind of today?s Indian women.
