Rafflesia the banished princess

All fairy tales on the book cover are not exactly the fairy tales that you find inside the book. The latest one is Rafflesia the banished princess. This is a book which rather focuses on the human side of life which is absolutely on our own prerogative that what we make out of it. Author Gautam conveys us the same message through his wonderful and almost allegorical novel which features the story...
