Nala and Damayanti
Nala and Damayanti
Description
The story of Nala and Damayanti is one of the episodes narrated in the Mahabharata, the great epic of India. Yudhishthira after losing his all in a game of dice, had to retire to the jungle, along with his brothers. There a Rishi tells him the story of Nala and Damayanti.

Nala was brave, handsome and skilled in the use of arms and the management of horses. Damayanti, the only daughter of the King of Vidarbha (Eastern Maharashtra) was beautiful and accomplished. When Nala heard of her beauty he began pining for her. The delicate job of conveying his love to his beloved was done remarkably well by a swan. Damayanti too began pining for her unseen lover. The story has so much romance and pathos in it that it has attracted the attention of writers and poets not only in India, but also in distant lands. It is well known in the West, from having been translated into Latin by Bopp, and into English verse by Dean Milman.

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. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

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
