Details

In these handpicked stories from various Puranas, folktales and other renditions, Author Kanupriya Ajitsaria, traverses a vast span across the four yugas, through various lands and the protagonists belonging to various age groups.

If they speak of the Godly incarnations, they also tell the lineage of the most famous Raakshasa, Raavan. These stories tell you how even the greatest saints, like Vasishtha, had to learn and practice restraint the hard way. Simple yet profound, they show that we, as humans, are immensely powerful and capable of defining our destiny. And we have to embrace the bad along with the good.
These stories are bound to thrill the novice and the learned alike. For the novice, they'll open the door to vast treasures of Indian history and culture, and for the learned, they'll provide some fresh perspectives.

I could not resist myself from reading the book on receipt of the same today that I completed 5 chapters of it in one go. Author of this book Kanpuriya has brought out the hidden treasures not only of our country but also of our culture beautifully in this book. Our scriptures are known for their secret nature and it's subtlety but the subject was made easy in the form of stories in Purana. This book is one step further to make the young generation aware of this hidden treasure in their own language with which presently, they are engrossed with.

A book for all ages

I found this book to be very well thought out and well written. All the stories in are so refreshing to read. The language used is also not overly complicated and easy to understand. I feel like anyone can enjoy and more importantly learn for this book.
