Description
About the Author

Lord Krishna is one of the endearing deities of Indian mythology and is considered to be of the nine avatars of Lord Krishna is, at times, the simple cowherd indulging the milkmaids in playful banter. At other times, he is the supreme intellectual engaged in the exposition of the Gita philosophy. Krishna’s beguiling childish pranks and his dignified wisdom have, in tum, influenced the Hindu consciousness for centuries.

This Amar Chitra Katha narrates the story of Narakasura whose deeds were so dark that his name has always been identified as a symbol of darkness. According to the Bhagwat Purana,, Narakasura was born of Mother Earth. Yet I his personality he was a brutish beast. Many who celebrate the festival of lights, Deepavali, believe they are actually rejoicing the death of Naraka and the consequent emancipation of all good spirits.

In south India, the story Naraka is laced with a ‘women’s lib’ edge. As told over there, it is Satyabhama who took up arms against the asura when, during the battle, Krishna had closed his eyes in momentary exhaustion. The Puranas apparently have no knowledge of this.

The frequent references to Krishna in our epics and poems, as the enemy of Naraka (Narakari) and even of his deputy Mura (Murari) Seem to indicate that the tyrant of Pragiyotishapura was notorious in his times. Krishna, the destroyer of evil, once more becomes the saviour in his story.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
