A retelling of the story of Krishna, drawing from the puranas, folk tales and legends. Krishna means the dark one; it also means the one who attracts us to him. Divine, at the same time endearingly human, Krishna is at once the beloved child, the stealer of hearts, the loyal friend, the astute statesman, the king, the valiant hero. This retelling in by Shanta Rameshwar Rao is simple enough to be understood by young readers, and evocative and thought provoking enough for adults. The author tells the story in such a way that we are both moved and charmed. There is a sense of the Divine here, at the same time, the retelling makes it very relevant to contemporary life. The book includes 16 paintings by the celebrated artist Bulbul Sharma. The line drawings are derived from the Sanjhi motifs of Vraj.
