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.

Wonderful service and excellent items. Always sent safely and arrive in good order. Very happy with firm.
Dr. Janice, Australia
Thank you. I purchased some books from you in the past and was so pleased by the care with which they were packaged. It's good to find a bookseller who loves books.

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.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
