The Kashmiri poet Somadeva composed a number of eulogies in honour of the dancing Ganesha, many of which communicate the joyousness that characterizes such images. One of them, when translated, reads:

Victory to Ganesha,
who when dancing makes a shower of stars
fall like a rain of flowers
from the sky by the movement of his trunk.

Nrtt (dancing) Ganesha is a popular stance encountered in temples all over India. It is possibly inspired by the image of his father, Shiva, the divine dancer. The gyrating Ganesha here also holds a snake in one hand, besides the noose and the elephant goad. The serpent, once again, is an attribute of Shiva.

With the left leg raised, Ganesha elegantly balances his bulky body. He is dressed in all his finery and an attractive diadem. One broken tusk is prominent, close to the trunk that curls towards the left. Ganesha's eyes are human-like, but sharply slanting.

Disproportionate in size and stature, Ganesha's vehicle, the mouse, sits unnoticed in one corner. Strange as it might seem, but the mighty elephant god chose a tiny mouse as his vahana.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

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
