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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
