Not just one of Arjuna’s wives
Characters from mythology, since time immemorial, have captured human imagination and form a very strong basis of our perception of social relationships and roles. That’s the major reason that characters like Arjuna, Draupadi, Sita and many more from our mythology resurface every now and then in literary discourse, newspaper articles, theatre and cinematic expressions.
The story of Arjuna and Uloopi fascinates me. Of all the Pandavas, Arjuna was the most handsome and an acclaimed archer, making him the most sought after. He won Draupadi in the archery competition set by King Drupad. But the strange utterance by Kunti made Draupadi the wife of five husbands.
