Book Review: Prem Purana by Usha Narayanan

Love reigns, not amidst just us mortals but beyond!

Who doesn’t love listening to the mythological stories? The stories my grandmother told me left an imprint in my young mind then. I will be lying if I say I don’t miss those storytelling sessions. Even today, the images and the beautiful world of Deva’s and Asura’s are still very vivid in my mind. And thanks to Usha Narayanan I got that slice of stories back.
This book has some amazing collection of stories of prema, romance, and love in mythological stories. There are some beautiful interactions amongst the characters, and the love blossoming is very piously brought out. A beautiful narration I loved reading it, through and through. 
Mythologies have a special fascination for me especially since it has that beauty of nostalgia stuck to it. Love certainly is one emotion which has affected not just us mortals but the Devas and Asuras equally.
Check it out from Good reads and Amazon.

No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, kings and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love also undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love, Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tested till almost nothing remained. 

Tormented by passion, wracked by betrayal, torn by the agony of separation, love in its many splendored forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories of Prem Purana.
