Tales and Legends from India

Indian mythology is my favorite in world mythology. We have great epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata. The epics are filled with brave princes, beautiful and capable princesses, ferocious demons and villains that make your heart skip a beat. I grew up reading Indian mythology and fables like Jataka tales and Panchatantra that taught principles of life in a fun way.

In this book, Tales and Legends from India, Ruskin Bond collects the tales from various sources: the great Hindu religious epics, Buddhist fables and stories recorded by early travelers. This is a beautiful and entertaining book that introduces you to Indian fairy tales and mythology. While reading this book, I was transported to childhood and also came across new stories that I haven’t read before.

In Ruskin Bond’s own words, “India is more than a land – it is an atmosphere – and this book is designed to give the reader the feel of India and recapture some of its old magic.”
