Publisher’s Note

Happy Birthday Puffin
Yes, it’s ten years of Puffin in India, and ten years of celebrating books and authors. Over the last decade, children’s books have been synonymous with puffin. Young readers have grown up with our titles, from classics to the contemporary. And we still have miles to go.

As a special treat to our lovely readers, we bring to your this unique collection of ten timeless folktales by ten of our very dear authors Ruskin Bond, Sudha Murty, Devdutt Pattanaik, Meera Uberoi, Shashi Deshpande, Paro Anand and others who have been part of the Puffin India Family all these years.

The Puffin book of Folktales is an assortment of delightful stories, some age old tales with a fresh twist, and other original offerings. While Musharraf Ali Farooqi and A.K. Ramanujan narrate humorous fables featuring the original angry birds, Paro Anand and Devdutt Pattanaik show us the human side of gods and great sages. Kamala Dass takes us into beautiful underwater world ruled by a sleepy fish king and a bored fish queen, and Meera Uberoi beings to life naughty little Ganesha’s antics. Poonam Athalye’s stunning illustrations add to the appeal of this book, making it truly a collector’s item.

So come, join the celebrations. These tales will leave you mesmerized with their magical charm.

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 just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
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.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
