Those who say the future is female forgot about the feisty Jindan Kaur, who began shattering glass ceilings in the nineteenth century!

@subhasish3663 @LiveHIndia @cdivakaruni It's effortlessly done @subhasish3663 there is so much to cover that I feel we have only touched the tip of the iceberg! Glad that @LiveHIndia is being able to capture the amazing stories that make India for the last 1467 days and counting ...
Thank you, SO happy to know this @MaheshKaul2! Request to readers: Please consider writing an online review wherever you bought #TheLastQueen (@amazonIN/ @crossword_book/ @Flipkart etc.) It REALLY helps a book in its infancy.🙏 @HarperCollinsIN @DiyaKar73
My copy of the LAST QUEEN written by @cdivakaruni arrived today
Finished it in one go.
Could not take away my eyes from the book till I read it.
Not only a living portrait of Rani Jindan but it weaves all events that shaped and demolished Sikh Kingdom in the Northern Frontier
I loved this spirited discussion of Rani Jindan on @LiveHIndia! The questions were awesome, and they researched & put up some excellent photos & paintings that had inspired scenes in my new novel #TheLastQueen. @HarperCollinsIN @DiyaKar73 @ShabnamSriv @jilpanz
Always a pleasure & honor to be invited to @JLFLitfest. This year, I'll talk about my new novel on Rani Jindan, #TheLastQueen, the idea for which was sparked by @DalrympleWill's #Kohinoor.

I love the deep questions the interviewer asks me in this conversation about #TheLastQueen: why was I fascinated by Rani Jindan? What lessons did I learn from her life?What were my most fascinating sources for this novel? My next project? etc. @HarperCollinsIN @DiyaKar73 @jilpanz
It is a story of love, glory and tragic loss. Catch author Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni as she talks about her new book ‘The Last Queen’ which brings alive the story of Rani Jindan of Punjab, the wife of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
