Katha Sagar

Thousands of years in their telling and retelling, these stories invite readers of all ages to explore one of the world’s most ancient and varied religious traditions. Vivid dramas―featuring gods, goddesses, kings, sages, and fools―have been selected from ancient Hindu epics, myths, and folk traditions across India. Sarah Conover, with the help of contributor Abhi Janamanchi and illustrator Shanthi Chandrasekar, brings to life the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of the land and people of Southern India, creating a captivating collection. The stories themselves convey key values, such as honesty, generosity, and justice, but also introduce readers to unique religious and cultural observances. Additional resources provide further information on Hinduism.
