Various Puranas narrate stories of Ganesha's birth, each differing from the other. The most popular one is depicted pictorially by the Madhubani artist.

The canvas is roughly divided into two, with the left half Showing Parvati in her home in the Kailash. The right side shows Shiva in his interaction with his son. Parvati had asked Ganesha to stand guard while she bathed. Shiva, not recognizing his son demanded to be let in. On being denied entry, he beheaded Ganesha. On seeing the sight, Parvati went into a frenzy till Shiva placed an elephant head on him and brought him back to life.

Though there is not strict compartmentalization; the story moves in an anti-clock manner. Along with pictorial depictions, the artist has written the explanation of each depiction in Devanagari script. He has used brilliant colours, making this painting a visually delightful narration of one of the most interesting episodes of the Shiva Purana.

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!
