A Treasury Of Ancient Indian Tales
A Treasury Of Ancient Indian Tales
Description
About The Book

This is collection of some of the most exciting and fun stories from Indian Mythology. Lucidly narrated and brilliantly illustrated, this exclusive assortment of tales gives us a peek into fascinating legends, and recounts the exploits of gods, demons and mortals in tales of valour, adventure and intrigue.

The first section consists assorted tales that retail the stories of how thunder got its sound, and what happened when the child Hanuman thought the rising sun was a ball to how Ganesh got the head of an elephant.

The second section tells tales of the never ending wars between the Devas and the Asuras the gods and the demons and how they constantly tried to outwit each other and seized control of the universe.

The third section is about the ten Avataras of Visnhu: from the great food to the yet to be born Kalki who will destroy all evil and create a new fair and happy world.

The fourth section features timeless tales from the Mahabharata stories that are not part of the main storyline about the Pandavas and the kauravas but which are an integral part of the great Indian tapestry of imagination and myth how Savitri brought Satyavan back from the dead the tale of Shakuntala’lot ring and many others.
