Nala and Damayanti
Nala and Damayanti
Description
The story of Nala and Damayanti is one of the episodes narrated in the Mahabharata, the great epic of India. Yudhishthira after losing his all in a game of dice, had to retire to the jungle, along with his brothers. There a Rishi tells him the story of Nala and Damayanti.

Nala was brave, handsome and skilled in the use of arms and the management of horses. Damayanti, the only daughter of the King of Vidarbha (Eastern Maharashtra) was beautiful and accomplished. When Nala heard of her beauty he began pining for her. The delicate job of conveying his love to his beloved was done remarkably well by a swan. Damayanti too began pining for her unseen lover. The story has so much romance and pathos in it that it has attracted the attention of writers and poets not only in India, but also in distant lands. It is well known in the West, from having been translated into Latin by Bopp, and into English verse by Dean Milman.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
