About the Author:
Maharudra Chakraborty was born in 1986, and brought up in Kolkata.
Indian mythology is a gem in ancient Indian literature. Ancient Indian literature books are mostly associated with Hinduism and it is undeniable that Ramayana and Mahabharata are the greatest epic of all time. However, apart from Ramayana and Mahabharata stories, there are several interesting stories in mythological books which are also popular among people. Those stories are divine and teach us good morality in life.
The category of books where we get those stories is known as Purana. There are eighteen major Puranas which are known as Mahapuranas. Along with these, many lesser-known Puranas known as Upapurana also exist.
But there is a severe problem. None of these Puranas tells the stories in a chronological way. Even in most of the cases one story contradicts to another. So, it is a very difficult task to arrange them chronologically and to tell them maintaining the theme intact for those stories.
In this book, I have tried my best to deliver the stories among you. The story is started from the beginning when the concept of the universe not existed. And the stories maintain a harmony between the chronology and family tree of different characters as far as possible. I have consulted different Puranas to write down every story. Also, I tried to propagate the storied maintaining the authenticity of the actual story written in books in a storytelling way. I hope you will enjoy it.
This is the first book of Mythological Book Series and your kind support will give me the enthusiasm to write more.
