Publisher: CBT Publication | ISBN: 8170119081 | edition 2001 | PDF | 122 pages | 26,27 mb
For the first time the ancient historical text Rajatarangini which means ‘River of Kings’ has been simplified for the younger generation. The stories which were written by Kalhana, a famous eleventh-century historian-poet bring to light the economic, political and social conditions of his time, and give interesting glimpses of life, including intrigues, in the royal court. Characters of the epics, such as Sri Krishna, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and many others find a place in the events and are drawn in various colors through all the stories giving a pictorial glimpse. Handed down from generation to generation, these stories cover Kashmir’s rich culture, traditions and beliefs.
