Cute historical snippet
Very cute and elegant depiction of part of a classic. Hope to see more such interesting historical refreshers!
Fun way to get a taste of a Sanskrit classic
Looks like i get to sleep much more than a king did 2300 yrs ago. Nice pictures, good information. Flip through in 10 minutes. My kind of book. Will I pick up original arthshastra next? Nope. Not my cup of tea.
