Lord Ganesha's Feast of Laughter
Lord Ganesha's Feast of Laughter
Description
From the Back of the Book:

Twenty-three Lively stories about the lovable elephant-headed god

Ganesha has an elephant's head, a pot belly and a rollicking sense of fun. Full of mischief, he fools around with gods and humans alike. He is also wise and shrewd, gentle and compassionate.

These tales of Lord Ganesha include old mythological favourites, like the stories about his birth and how he got his elephant head. Alongside are little-known tales dug up from ancient texts - how Ganesha created the tabla, how he stopped Ravana from becoming all-powerful, how he won a race around the world without moving an inch, and how he swallowed Vishnu, Brahma and Lakshmi in one big gulp! Each illustrated tale is told with sparkling wit - to match that of the boisterous god.

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!
Chitra, United Kingdom

I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
