Stories From Ithihyamala Fables Of Kerala
Stories From Ithihyamala Fables Of Kerala
Description
Back of the Book

'Ithihya' means traditional legends; 'mala' is a chain or a garland. Ithihyamala is a collection of legends in Malayalam, numbering over a hundred. Its author, Kottarathil Sankunni, was a versatile scholar with extensive knowledge of Kerala's history and customs. The stories cover a vast spectrum of life, personalities, events and skills, including magic, medicine, illusion (indrajal), so on. The elephant stories are unique. The stories are remarkable for their simplicity, lucid style, richness of humour and charm. We have stories of Sri Krishna full of compassion for his devotees, and adventures of Ayyappan, Lord of Sabarimala, in which abound his companions-leopards, tigers, monkeys.

Ithihyamala is a fascinating assemblage of legends, and it has not been matched by any other tome of tales in Malayalam for their delight of reading. This volume contains chosen stories from the original classic.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
