Devi Kannaki
Devi Kannaki
Description
From the Jacket

No tribute to Indian womanhood can be complete without mentioning Devi Kannaki. Kannaki is the epitome of sublimity, love, sacrifice, forgiveness, patience and revenge; all of which encompasses the Indian womanhood. But above all, she represented the sanctity of Indian women. The amount of popularity that Kannaki enjoyed can be gauged by the fact that this epic has been translated into English by a French scholar Alan Danielou. This book is an effort to present Kannaki to the people of our country, especially the women and to make them aware about the greatness of this woman.

Preface

No tribute to Indian womanhood can be complete without mentioning Kannaki. The name may not sound very familiar to many, but in Tamil Nadu, she is worshipped. Kannaki is the epitome of sublimity, love, sacrifice, forgiveness, patience and revenge; all of which encompasses the Indian womanhood. But above all, she represented the sanctity of Indian women. In fact, 'Cilapatikaram' considered to be one of the supreme epics of the world, and its three dimensional structure, the fiery purity and sublimity, is all about Kannaki. Never has an epic been written with woman as the central theme. The amount of popularity that Kannaki enjoyed cab be gauged by a French scholar Alan Danielou. Kannaki is the heart and soul of 'Shilap'. The name Kannaki carries a magical glow, a talismanic charm for the Tamils where she is honoured and worshipped. This book is an effort to present Kannaki to the people of our country, especially the women and to make them aware about the greatness of this woman. She is a rare jewel among the women of the world. She is a goddess among women.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
