Description

About the Book:

'Arabian Nights' or The Thousand Nights' was originally authored in Persian language under the caption 'Alif Laila'. It is one of the world's famous classics and especially in the category if children's literature. It is mostly a collection of stories from ancient Indian, Persian and Arabic folklore, these are highly imaginative stories, full of magical fantacies and happenings. As the folklore goes once a Sultan known as shaharyaar, married a beautiful girl named Shaharzaad for one night only. The next day he intended to kill her in the same manner as he had done away with some of her earlier one-night queens. The clever Shaharzaad saved her life by continuously telling stories to Sultan, one after another, This story narration continued for 1001 nights.

Some of the stories the young readers keep on enjoying as ever are the story of Sindbad the Sailor; the story of Alladin and the magic lamp; the story of Alibaba and the Forty Thieves; the story of Ninth Statue; the story of Pyari Bano; the story of Hassan: The Rope Weaver, the Story of Blind Beggar, the Story of Good-for-Nothing and Nawab etc.; These stories, written in a simple and lucid style, apart form entertaining the readers-young and old alike-also inculcate in them a sense of moral and social values.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
