9780143332473: Pashu: Animal Tales from Hindu Mythology

Discover how a fish saves the world, how a horse flies across the sky, and how a king finds out that his beloved wife is actually a frog! Few animals are looked upon with fear while the others are associated with Gods and worshipped. Some seem to mould the fate of the world while others form enduring bonds with humans. From Vishnu s avatars to Shiva s asanas, this book delves into questions such as the following: how was a deer responsible for a lot of events of the Ramayana? Why is Garuda the archenemy of the nagas? How did a mongoose teach Yudhishthira the meaning of sacrifice? Pattanaik answers all these questions and more in this title with his usual charm and wit.
