From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the country and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.

Back of the Book

Nahusha was an ancestor of the Pandavas, and the son of King Ayus and Queen Indumati. He was a descendant of Manu (from the line of: Manu-lla-Pururavas-Ayus-Nahusha).

The four tales in this book serve as simple lessons. The Birth of Nahusha' tells a charming tale of baby Nahusha's abduction by the evil asura Hunda, and the turn of events thereafter. 'Nahusha and Chyavana' shows the king, Nahusha, as one who is fair, just and true. This story has been somewhat modified for our young readers.

In 'The Curse', Nahusha is chosen as the king of heaven, and he gains more power and renown with humility and devoutness. His subsequent vanity, however, leads to his downfall. His fall from the heavens is redeemed by Yudhishthira in 'Nahusha and Yudhishthira', after which Nahusha returns to heaven and again comes to be counted among the noblest.

The first tale in this Amar Chitra Katha is from the Padma Purana and the others are from the Mahabharata.
