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.

Testimonials
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 !
