Did you know there was a time when bears spoke, the moon laughed and babies were found inside fish?
Have you heard of the two-horned sage who had never seen a woman in his life?
Did you know Ravana's half-brother was the god of wealth?
Have you ever seen a man with a thousand arms?

The tales in this collection surround the two most popular avatars of Lord Vishnu-Rama and Krishna-and their lineage. Countless stories about the two abound, yet most are simply disappearing from the hearts and minds of the present generation.
Bestselling author Sudha Murty takes you on an arresting tour, all the while telling you of the days when demons and gods walked alongside humans, animals could talk and gods granted the most glorious boons to common people.

About the Author

Sudha Murty was born in 1950 in Shiggaon, north Karnataka. She did her MTech in computer science and is now the chairperson of the Infosys Foundation.

A prolific writer in English and Kannada, she has written novels, technical books, travelogues, collections of short stories and non-fiction pieces, and six bestselling books for children.

Her books have been translated into all the major Indian languages. Sudha Murty is the recipient of the R.K. Narayan Award for Literature (2006), the Padma Shri (2006), and the Attimabbe Award from the Government of Karnataka for excellence in Kannada literature (2011).

I was looking for a concise, easy-to-remember and interesting guide of Indian Mythology. There're some of Greek Mythology and Norse Mythology, but didn't find such for Indian Mythology. Then I came across this book.

Actually you may take this book as a part of a series, according to me. The so-called series includes three books - The Man From The Egg: Unusual Tales About The Trinity, The Serpent's Revenge: Unusual Tales from the Mahabharata and The Upside-Down King: Unusual Tales about Rama and Krishna.

These three books can be read by anyone aged from 8 to 80. But, these books should not be used for research purpose as that needs more in-depth analysis.
