Madhav and Kama A Love Story From Ancient India
Description
From the Back of the Book:

This is the story of Madhavanala and Kamakandala. Madhav, a handsome and accomplished young man, is asked to leave his city of Pushpavati: has looks and singing so distract women that they neglect their work, and city folk are in uproar about it. Exiled, Madhav reaches the court of King Kama Sena, the ruler of Kamavati, where he meets the bewitching courtesan Kama. The two fall in love, but royal ire ensures that the lovers must part. A heartbroken Madhav takes shelter in a temple at Ujjain, the city of King Vikramaditya.

What can the great ruler do to assuage Madhava's Pain?
What does he do to reunite the lovers?

This is lively and colourful tale has an ending the matches its evocative language, startling metaphors and candid narration of love. In circulation since the twelfth century AD, Madhav & Kama has been translated from the original Sanskrit text readers in English for the first time.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!
Anir, UK
Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
