Description
About the Book

Shiva in the City of Nectar sweeps across Heaven, Eath and the Underworld, as the mysterious and powerful blue-throated god sports with devas, asuras, sages, mortals and mythical beasts. In these 54 divine tales from ancient India, Shiva is portrayed in all his multi- faceted mystique- the tender lover who woos and wins Goddess Meenakshi; the eternal Guru who dispenses wisdom; the fierce avenger whose third eye flashes fire; the generous benefactor who showers blessings on his devotes and, above all, the gentle prankster who embodies the essence of vedic faith.

About the Author

Preetha Rajah Kannan is the author of Son of Shiva, a gripping narrative on the exploits of the warrior- god kartikeya. She is also the editor of Navagraha Purana, a translation of the eponymous Telugu work on the mythology of the nine planets, by celebrated author V. S. Rao. Kannan has contributed extensively to newspapers and magazines, such as The New Indian Express and The Express School Magazine. A homemaker and a mother of two boys, she lives with her family in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
