Description

Foreword

 

Encouraged by the popularity received by the first volume of the stories from Kathasaritasagara, we are now presenting to our readers the second volume of the same. This volume contains a larger number of stories of varied interest. The themes of the stories are mostly romantic and ethical, illustrating how the mysterious hand of Fate plays with the lives of human beings. Though the foremost object of the story-teller here is entertainment, it appears that he also wants to instruct, the reader in the intricacies of life and thus help him avoid the pitfalls. We hope that the present volume also will prove an enjoyable reading and will appeal to the public.

 

Due to non-availability of diacritical marks in the particular types used in this book, a list of the Sanskrit words occuring in the book is given in the beginning along with the diacritical marks as an aid to pronunciation.

 

We are thankful to Dr. Singh and Dr. Ramakrishna of the English Department, who kindly went through the translation of the stories and made valuable suggestions.

 

Our thanks are also due to the Manager and the staff of the Commercial Printing Press for printing the work carefully and promptly.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
