Adithi Rao (Author)
Synopsis Classical Sanskrit and Tamil writing teem with a myriad characters, and here we meet some truly memorable ones. This collection of six plays, poems and epics retold for children includes 'Shakuntala', a heartrending story of the love between the beautiful Shakuntala and King Dushyanta; 'The Little Clay Cart', where the evil designs of the king and his family are foiled by the righteous Charudatta and Vasantasena; 'The Story of an Anklet', about Kannagi, who wreaks a terrible revenge for the wrong done to her; 'Manimekalai', the extraordinary account of a woman's search for her true calling; 'The Last Trial of Sita', in which the playwright gives a whole new ending to the Ramayana, and The Broken Thigh', about the final, desperate combat between Duryodhana and Bheema on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. Accompanied by descriptions of the authors' lives and the time when the stories were written, these lively retellings are an ideal introduction to some of the best-known stories from the Indian classics.
