Title : The Battle of Panchavati and other stories from Indian Scriptures

Author : Divya Narain Upadhyaya

This book is a collection of short stories from the great epic “The Mahabharata”, “The Ramayana” and several other Indian religious texts and mythologies.

The title of the book is astounding and perfect for the content of the book which consist of the chapter with the name The Battle of Panchavati.

The book tells us 7 beautiful stories from the Indian Scriptures

1. The Cosmic Dance – its the story of mahadev and sati viyog

2. The Eighth Son – Its the story off Krishna’s birth

3. The Battle of Panchavati – The story of the place where Lakshman cuts Raavan’s sister, Surpanakha nose

4. The Killing of Keechak – The story of Agayatvash from Mahabharata

5. Gangadhar – The story of Ganda avataran to earth in Mahadev hair.

6. The Curse of Draupadi – it’s a short story from Mahabharata

7. Gautam – The story of Mahatma Budh

Although, I have read most of the stories before, but I must say each story is so interesting and so well-written, I was just flipping pages, what’s next.

I especially loved the story of The Cosmic Dance where the author has described about the shaktipeeth that are present in India and how they are formed.

So, grab the copy and experience these stories and do tell me if you like it or not. Trust me you’ll love this masterpiece.

I will give it 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5
