This book is a part of a series of books that every home should have and every child should read growing up. I think that it the most wonderful way to introduce children to Indian history. This book is scrupulously researched and written in clear and easy language that also translates the power, importance and message of these stories. I loved that is is styled as a travelogue and it that it so effortlessly and engagingly underlines its ultimate purpose: to open a door into the bottomless universe of history and mythology. It is an absolute must read!!
