Those who say the future is female forgot about the feisty Jindan Kaur, who began shattering glass ceilings in the nineteenth century!
Meet the OG warrior queen in @cdivakaruni's #TheLastQueen.
Share in the comments the name of a true warrior queen who inspires you.
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
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
From being the daughter of a kennel keeper to becoming the Queen of Punjab to being imprisoned by the British, Rani Jindan's life was full of ups and downs. Her story is brought alive in a new novel by @cdivakaruni

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
