Description

The vastness of Hinduism and some aspects of Indian culture have been systematically put together in this compact book. It talks about the most revered gods and goddesses of the Hindu pantheon; tells why Krishna is blue, why is the cow sacred; why do Hindu gods have so many arms, and the like.

Apart from this, ancient Indian sciences; fairs and festivals; Indian music, musical instruments and dances; and also tips on how to drive an elephant are discussed.

With such extensive information being compiled in a book like this, Hinduism is the most reliable source of knowledge on the mentioned and related subjects.
