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.

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!

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.
