Description
About the Book

Parvati is an incarnation of the Divine Mother, Goddess Durga and wife of Lord Shiva. She is the gentler from of Goddess Durga and is a home-maker, with a husband and children. However, Goddess Parvati herself is very accomplished and skilled enough to fight the demons single-handedly. She too is considered to be a supreme goddess from whom other Shaktis (divine energies) are derived. This book tells the tales of how Parvati won Lord Shiva as her husband during times of trouble.

About the Author

Gauri Kelkar is a freelance writer and editor whose area of interest now extends into the vast and varied mythological world of gods and goddesses. A first-timer in the world of children’s writing where imagination rules, the journey from writing content for adults to writing tales for children has been fraught with literary challenge—one that she has enjoyed thoroughly!

A fourth year student at Srishti, Bengaluru, shilo Shiv Suleman is a freelance illustrator, animator and designer. In her spare time, she gypsies around the country getting lost in watercolour wondferlands and pressing flowers between the pages in her notebook. She believes in Love, Magical Realism and everything that shimmers. This is her seventh book for children.

Preface

parvati is considered to be the most prominent avatar of Goddess Durga. Parvati is the wife of Lord Shiva, the destroyer.

She is the gentler and maternal version of the warrior-goddess, vet, skilled and powerful enough to destroy evil on Earth. In this avatar, she is a home-maker and a mother to gods Ganesha and Kartikeya, therefore easily identifiable with humans.

Parvati is the daughter of the lord of the mountains, Himavat, and a reincarnation of Lord Shiva’s first wife, Sati, another avatar of Goddess Durga.

Parvati is variously referred to as Shailaputri, Ambika, Gauri, Shvama, Uma, Aparna among several others—Shyama, in her dark- skinned form, and Gauri, the golden-skinned one after having shed her skin following an intense penance.

She is depicted with two hands when she is with Lord Shiva, and with four when by herself.
