Description
From the Jacket:

ANANDA MATH is considered to be a milestone in the history of modern fiction in India. It received such wide acclaim in the late nineteenth century that Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, its author, was referred to as the Walter Scott of India. Translations appeared in Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi and Urdu.

The song, 'Vande Mataram', which Bankim Chandra first wrote in this novel, echoed through the freedom movement; during the Non-Co-operation movement the song was heard on the lips of many, while they braved the lathis of the British police force.

Bankim Chandra Chatterjee wrote Kapala Kundala, his second novel, when he was only twenty-eight years old. The name Kapala Kundala has been taken from the Sanskrit Play, Malati-Madhava. In the play, Kapala is the associate of the evil Kapalik, Aghora Ghanta, and she is as heinous as her mentor. But through our heroine was also brought up by an evil kapalik, she is full of human affection and kindness. While presenting this fascinating romance, certain events and characters have been omitted and the story has been modified to make it suitable for children.

The third Chitra Katha in this special issue is Devi Choudhurani. Both Devi Choudhurani and her mentor, Bhavani Pathak, are historical characters who figure in the report of Lieutenant Brennan, quoted by Hunter in his 'Statistical Account of Bengal'. There is no historical explanation of what made Devi turn to dacoity in the first place and later, what made her give it up. However, Bankim Chandra's fertile imagination has provided answers to these puzzling questions in his novel, on which our tale is based.

Kileigh

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
