One of the story i really liked. I even went to Udaygiri in Madhya Pradesh. Saw beautiful carvings in cave. That carving was telling this whole story. Imagine my coincidence visiting that cave and reading this book. I have even uploaded that pic in instagram.

Yet another lovely book about Indian mythology. I've been learning a lot with these little gems and I also enjoy the texts that Sundari adds at the end of the books (in this one NON-STOP NONSENSE). It certainly is a lovely way to reach children of all ages (even when they are as old as 67...). A must read for people of all ages.

yadā yadā hi dharmasya
glānir bhavati bhārata
abhyutthānam adharmasya
tadātmānaṁ sṛjāmy aham

~ Shrimad Bhagvad Gita

(A promise by God, that whenever there is a decline in righteousness and when evil becomes all powerful, He will descend on earth to re-establish order and save mankind)

We’ve seen how God has lived up to his promise in his first two of the Dashavatar’s.

So why and when does he take up his third Avatar? Does he once again live up to his promise? VARAHA: The Third Avatar has the answers.
