This comic book in large format and beautifully illustrated in color on art paper recounts several stories from Madh Pradesh, now known as Rajasthan.
In this volume we invite you to walk with us on the golden sands of Madh Pradesh. Experience the vast beauty and the relentless ferocity of the desert and hear its plaintive songs and sounds wafting through the blue-black night.
The stories in this volume share the heart aches of the immortal love stories of Madh Pradesh such as Madechi Mumal, the pain of women separated from their beloveds, such as the one in Panihari, the wonder of legends like the retreat of Hakda Lake and Teelon ki Prol, the bravery of jhunjars like Buto Pir, and the sharp incisive wit of the desert women, treaded by the harsh climate and the instinct to preserve their home and selves. And of course, there are the stories, perennial in their wisdom and humor, narrated from generation to generation.
All this and more awaits you inside.
