Devi, in her various incarnations is mother, faithful wife, a warrior, delivering all that her devotees ask of her. Parvati is one goddess who finds no mention in Vedic literature but later, was widely worshipped as Shiva's consort.

When Parvati was a young girl, a sage came to her house and informed her that one day she would marry an ascetic whose body would be covered with ash. The prophecy came true. In this kalamkari, the artist depicts the marriage procession of Shiva & Parvati. The couple, seated on the bull Nandi, proceeds towards Kailash, the adobe of Shiva. Preceded by the ganas playing the musical instruments lost in the revelry of the celebrations, Shiva & Parvati have the expression of exhilaration on their faces. On either side of them can be seen Vishnu & Brahma, the god of preservation and creation respectively. Celestial dancers following the procession complete the picture of joy. The union of Shiva and Parvati has a great significance, as implied in the Puranas. And as art draws heavily from literature, the event is frequently depicted in every form of Indian art.

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.

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!
