ebook Ì Prem Purana ì Usha Narayanan

S 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 tested til Three characters from three realms diverse in nature yet what makes them a part of this book titled ‘Prem Purana’ is that their heart beats with love that is neither frivolous not soaked in lust In fact it is pure love that drives their thoughts and actions Split into three sections ‘Prem Purana’ deals with Ganesha’s love life Mandodari’s love and Damyanti’s riddle While Ganesha’s attempts at wooing Brahma’s daughters brought a smile to the face Ravana’s attitude towards Mandodari and his extra marital affairs in the latter part of the story had me virtually gritting my teeth Nal Damyanti’s story though short when compared to the other two was like a dessert served at the end of a sumptuous meal sweet and satisfying What took me by surprise?1 Ganesha’s love life I’ve always looked upon Ganesha the cute little God the ‘vignahartha’ as a bachelor So the story of his attempts to woo not one but three damsels came as a surprise But then Indian Mythology is open to vast interpretation So if you look at this story from another angle you may not feel surprised Isn’t Ganesha after all Buddhi Riddhi and Siddhi all packaged into one? Yes he is So I guess he is wedded to these three virtues that make him the most popular of all Gods sacred to the Hindus2 The Secret of Mandodari’s daughter I’ve never come across this one But then I guess I’ve never given Mandodari much of a thought It’s always been Ram Sita Lakshman Ravan Kumbhakaran and MeghnathEndowed with the gift for making even the mundane witty and interesting Usha Narayan weaves a magic of sorts with the characters especially in the first two sections of the book One feels the events unfolding before one’s eyes making one feel a part of the times and the venue the stories are set in There are places where one can’t help but try suppress a good laugh and there are others where one feels bitter wishing to knock some sense in the characterThe language the style and the stories make the book a truly enjoyable read Is there something to take away from the book?Yes little nuggets of wisdom essential for a happy and peaceful existence

Usha Narayanan ì Prem Purana ebook

Prem PuranaStories of love and extraordinary devotion No one is untouched by love not even devas and asuras kings and nymphs And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations their love also undergoes trial Disclaimer I'm an agnostic who detests reading love stories; and I'm reviewing a book based on the love stories of gods broadly or less Hence some parts of this review might end up offending the believers you shouldn't be though if you're a rational personnot that I care anyway So if you are one of those who can't even digest a little fun banter on your Gods stop right here Go and read one of those thousands of years old comic books insteadThe above information was for those who don't know me personally which covers almost the entire Earth's population sad face So what made me do it agree to read and review 'Prem Purana' that is? Well it's written by Usha Narayanan Need I say ?That being out of the way let's get going'Prem Purana' is an anthology of sorts which consists of three completely different stories all based on mythological characters though or Historical characters as many would like to call themThe first is about the most loved and revered Hindu God Ganesha; yeah the same one with the head of an elephant and a body to match I remember my mother narrating stories about him his lovable personality his powers his triumphs; basically all things that made him someone who Needs to be worshiped read non humane I read Ms Narayanan's version and I felt that he's anything but that The dude was almost human Who else but a human would desire read lustor maybe not each one of the three triplet sisters that too those of Lord Bhrama no less all at the same time? Perv No nothingThe second one tells the not so heard story of Mandodri the wife of the highly learned yet brain effed for a supposedly divine reason king of Lanka Ravana Mandodri's devotion and unfailing loyalty and love towards her husband is something that is so lacking between partners in the current times Maybe after all there is indeed something that we can take off of all those myths and I mean it in a completely gender neutral way one can't afford to mess with the self proclaimed yet ill informed feminist nazis nowadaysThe third and the last is a tale about Nala the ruler of ancient Nishada and Damyanti the princess of Vidharba in the ancient Bharat Varsha While many of us might have read titbits about their story in our earlier school curriculum none would have known them the way the author has described in this book This one reinstates the fact that true love always wins in the end those were olden times dude; don't get your hopes up She won't lose a heartbeat in dumping you today if you end up before her as an ugly dwarfLong story short if a proclaimed non believing ass like me can read and LOVE this book I'm sure you lesser mortals would fall hopelessly in love with it So go ahead and read it Don't thank me later because I'll be on an anti mythology treatment in one of those ungodly institutes that treat vampires and werewolvesOn a serious note this one is yet another gem from the master storyteller Usha Narayanan You have to read it to believe it As usual the language is easy and flowing and the description makes the story almost visualI give this book a full five out of five stars
