A fish saves the world.
A horse flies across the sky.
A king discovers that his beloved wife is actually a frog.
Hindu mythology is full of tales in which animals play important roles. Some animals are looked upon with fear and dread while some are worshiped along with the gods. Some shape the fate of the world, others form everlasting bonds with humans. Where did the animals come from? From Vishnu’s avatars or Shiva’s asanas? How was a deer responsible for the events of the Ramayana? Why is Garuda the sworn enemy of the nagas? How did a mongoose teach Yudhishtira the true meaning of sacrifice?
Devdutt Pattanaik answers all these questions and more in this book, retelling numerous animal stories from ancient texts, with his trademark charm and wit.
