Overview: Nagpal. Draupadi.

Author: Saraswati Nagpal
Artist: Manu

Comment. This is a graphic novel version of the Mahabharata, focusing on Draupadi. If you like this graphic novel, you might also want to read Sita by the same author!

Bizzell Reserve. Go to the Bizzell Reserve Desk to check out this book. Call number: BL 1138.4 .D72 N34 2012. 

Length: two weeks. I've divided the reading into four parts: Part A - Part B (one week of reading), and then Part C - Part D (another week of reading).

Reading A
pp. 1-31: through Draupadi being born from the fire
Reading B:
pp. 32-59: through Arjuna being commanded to go seek weapons

Reading C
pp. 60-87: Krishna answers Draupadi's prayer
Reading D:
pp. 88-115: the end (and make sure you read the additional notes about Draupadi on the final pages; there is some good stuff there!)
