Pride, as we all know, leads us downhill. Yet, all of us, even the Gods and our epic heroes, at one time or another, are ensnared into this trap.
Is there any hope?
Yes, as these stories from folklore and the Mahabharata tell us, once having learned our lesson, it is possible to live a better life!
I am sure, these stories will give a direction to the children and their parents and enable them to make a deeper study of our Puranas and Itihas and share its precious message with others.
Krishna blessed them all and said, So long as you remember that there is an unseen hand which guides you, you will not have a chance to suffer. This is many other words of wisdom intersperse with the fun-filled stories.
The author, SRI C L PURUSHOTHAMA RAO is a seasoned Mission worker with a deep knowledge of our ancient literature but also, with the ability to mould it for children so that they may enjoy the tales and learn from them.
