Back of the Book

No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, king and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love too undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tasted till almost nothing remained.

Tomented by passion, tortured by betrayal and wracked by the agony of sepration, love in its many splendorous forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories.

It is that which sustains.
