This Special Issue brings together three Amar Chitra Kathas titles - all based on the life of Krishna, a most endearing and ennobling character in Indian mythology. The stories included in this volume are: Krishna, Krishna and Rukmini, The Syamantaka Gem.
Krishna is at once the common cowheard engaging the milkmaids in playful banter and the supreme intellectual engaged in the exposition of the Gita philosophy.
Krishna has a particular appeal for children because he is one of them as no other divine is. Krishna he boy is mischievous, he is naughty. He has irrepressible energy for innumerable escapades. This powerful human content is the secret of Krishna's universal popularity.
In the second title of this volume is the story of Krishna's marriage with Rukmini
The third title in this volume tells the story of Krishna being falsely accused the stealing of gem, " Syamantaka". To save his honor Krishna goes on a desperate gem hunt to the jungle.
Krishna and Rukmini
