THE MAHABHARATHA : A  Child's View (Part-II)
THE MAHABHARATHA : A Child's View (Part-II)
Description

About the Book :

"I love mythoilogy," says twelve year old Samhita Arni "because the stories never end." Her version of the Mahabharatha is bold and unorthodox in its depiction of character and it the critical tone it adopts with the epic's main theme: war. Illustrated with charming and intricate line drawings, this best-selling book offers children and adults a fresh perspective on the timeless epic.

Part-I begins with the story of Santanu, and takes the reader up to the exile of the Pandavas. This volume (Part II) concludes the epic with the Great War.

Reviews:

"a wonderful way to learn about Indian mythology … this is a small masterpiece which deserves nothing but the highest recommendation."
Academy for children's Literature and Media, Germany

"A celebration of the wonder that is childhood and a reaffirmation of the existence of sheer talent in this county's young."
Sagari Chhabra, Book Review

"You could definitely ask your child to read you this at bedtime."
Vatsala Kaul, Biblio ":……The wealth of detail, the originality and charm of the illustrations lend the work an air of distinction."
Sharada Bhanu, Indian Review of Books

Testimonials
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 !
