More Details on:


A graphical re-telling of the mythology of Goddess Durga. Contemporary in outlook and rendered in a unique graphical format, for the first time! The book depicts in rich detail Debi Durga's creation by the Gods of the Hindu pantheon and her epic battle with the demon king Mahishasura in buffalo disguise, who with a boon from Lord Brahma had wreaked havoc in the three worlds!
Her victory over the demon earned her the name Mahishasuramardini. This victory till today is celebrated all across India during the Pujas and Navaratri, culminating in Vijaya Dashami!
So is there a fresh new re-interpretation for this tradition of worshiping the fierce manifestation of energy, Shakti?
And what about her victory? Is it purely a myth? Or does it hold anything new for us to understand?
