Harischandra
Harischandra
Description
India is a land of countless legends and stories. A few of them have survived the onslaught of time and remained alive over the centuries. One such story is that of Harischandra, the king whose honesty was unmatched.

The story as it has come down to us has many variations from the original narration in the Markandeya Purana. The folk- singers, the dramatists and the poets who have handled the story have all added to it -an incident here, a character there - for greater effect. It is worth mentioning that Gandhiji, whose book 'My Experiments with Truth' is justly famous, was greatly inspired by a dramatic representation of this story which he had seen in his boyhood.

This is the story of a king, who when pitted against forces immensely more powerful than himself faces them with an unflinching faith in integrity.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable.

Vana, Australia
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!
