Untold Stories of King Bhoja
Untold Stories of King Bhoja
Description

From the Jacket:

Author, journalist and scholar, Shri Ayer is given to by aptitude and training, a wide range of studies extending from Astrology to Vedic researches. Starting life as the Editor of a Music Journal in the early thirties, he was a school teacher for two years. The lure of the pen drew him again to the editorial department of daily newspapers of Ceylon, Madras and Bombay successively.

He joined the Bhavan in 1952 and served as Associate Editor of the Bhavan's Journal since its inception for 15 years till 1968, when he went over to Bangalore in 1968 as the Director of Bhavan's Bangalore Kendra. Presently he is engaged in producing Cultural Readers and other literature for children at the Bhavan.

His published works include a book on astrology and a couple of books on palmistry, besides Stories of the King Madana Kama, Stories of King Bhoja and Hindu Sastra and Samskara published by the Bhavan.

The stories of Vikramaditya are among the oldest collection of folk-tales centering round the personality of King Vikramaditya of Ujjain. First written in Sanskrit, a number of slightly differing versions are extant in all the major languages of India. The stories are most interesting.

The original authorship of these stories is unknown, even as their dates; but they are generally believed to have originated during the period 11th to13th centuries.

The present, author has retold them in English for the modern man.

The main purpose of these stories is to illustrate the generous deeds of a model king and emphasize moral lessons. In this light they are didactic, but in their ingenious plots, dramatic situations, portrayal of real life and correct appraisal of human character, they are superb. As the reader can easily notice, human nature has not changed a whit even after a thousand years.

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
