THE TOTA KAHANI Parrot Tales
THE TOTA KAHANI Parrot Tales
Description
About the Book

Tales of mystic places and mysterious people pervade the pages of this book to fascinate, educate and fill our hearts with pleasurable emotions. Tales of princes and princesses, their clandestine lovers, tales of greed and jealousy are all eloquently told. Steeped in ancient history and culture they open up new vistas to brighten up this seemingly drab and dull world of ours. Many of these tales are simple and easily understood, whilst others are more sophisticated and carry a hidden and deeper message for the reader.

Taken originally from a Sanskrit collection this version of these particular tales was first translated and adapted in Persian and then re-translated into Hindustani. Their present form thus provides us with a great blend of many cultures and beliefs. All, however, help the reader understand and delight in one of the most fascinating of ancient civilizations.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
