Kapala Kundala
Kapala Kundala
Description
Bankim Chandra Chatterji wrote Kapala Kundala, his second novel, when he was only twenty-eight years old.

It is said that when he was residing at Kanthi, on the coast of south- west Bengal, he was frequently visited by a kapalik (a Tantric worshipper of Kali or Shiva).

The mystery surrounding the kapalik made a deep impression on Bankim and he conceived the idea of writing a novel about a girl brought up by a kapalik in complete isolation from the civilised world.

The name Kapala Kundala has been taken from the Sanskrit play, Malati- Madhava. In the play, Kapala is the associate of the evil kapalik, Aghora Ghanta, and she is as heinous as her mentor. But, though our heroine was also brought up by an evil kapalik, she is full of human affection and kindness.

While presenting this fascinating romance, certain events and characters have been omitted and the story has been modified to make it suitable for children.

Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
