The Elephant-Headed God and Other Hindu Tales
The Elephant-Headed God and Other Hindu Tales
Description
About the Book

The three worlds of gods, of humans and of demons, come alive in these age old takes from Hindu mythology. The twelve stoics retold here contain much of the enduring wisdom of India. Some tell of characters familiar to children in a multicultural society. While others introduce not so well known. As classic in a free and powerful re-telling they belong to children everywhere in every age.

Both the vivacity and strength of the culture behind these ancient tales are expressed in the beautiful illustrations by Margaret Joncs which accompany the text.

About the Author

Dr. Debjani Chatterjee was born in India. She is Principal Community Relations Officer in Shehhield. She is also a poet and cartoonist. Margaret Jones lived in India for many years. Her illustrations for The Mabinogin and The Quest for Olwen have won her wide acclaim.

Author’s Foreword

These stories come from ancient India, but they belong to children everywhere and in every age. They tell of a fabulous world peopled by gods and goddesses, angelic beings and demons, kings and queens, heroes and beggars. It is a world that is brought to life by your curiosity and imagination.

These stories are among the oldest in the world. They contain voices from hundreds of years ago. When you read them, judge for yourself if those voices have something to say to children of today.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
