THE TIGER OF THE RIVER

Somewhere in the Kaveri River where the water rushes through a deep gorge, lives a very special fish called Matisha, one of the largest and most beautiful freshwater fish on Planet Earth.

Matisha delights in exploring her mysterious underwater world and meets a vast array of magnificent animals with whom she shares the river and the surrounding jungle. She is fascinated by the many strange fish of all shapes and sizes and the large powerful animals like tigers and elephants which occasionally visit the river. She dodges the attention of hungry birds, crocodiles and otters who would love to gulp her down as prey. She also learns about humans, who are sometimes far more dangerous than the animals around her.

Add to basket 499.00

MAGNIFICENT MONUMENTS OF INDIA: THE KAILASH TEMPLE AT ELLORA – GREAT ART IN STONE

The Kailash Temple at Ellora is considered to be a pinnacle of ancient Indian art, architecture and sculpture. Built by Rashtrakuta king Krishna I in the eighth century CE, the temple is part of the Ellora Cave complex near Aurangabad in Maharashtra. Carved out of rock from the hills, the temple is dedicated to Shiva. On its walls teem innumerable sculptures depicting gods, goddesses, animals, birds, men and women. The splendour of these frozen figures, and the meticulous thought and planning that went into creating this temple by cutting through sheer rock, is a story every child needs to know.

OUT OF THE FIRE

It wasn’t the kidnapping that ruined Cass Adams’s life. It was the letters that came after. The pink envelopes that appear in her car, her locker, her bedroom. Notes from the man she escaped, telling her that he’s always there, always watching. And that someday, he’ll be back for her.

The police say there’s nothing they can do, and Cass resigns herself to live in fear until she reconnects with three old friends-three girls ready to exact vengeance on those who wronged them. But the deeper Cass digs, the more shocking the truth becomes, especially when she discovers that the person who ruined her life may be the only one who can save it.

DADAMONI: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ASHOK KUMAR
Add to basket 499.00

DADAMONI: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ASHOK KUMAR

Ashok Kumar (1911–2001), fondly known as Dadamoni, is one of the great icons of Hindi cinema. This warm, intimate biography traces his remarkable journey, from reluctant actor to Bollywood’s first superstar and, in his later years, a much-loved presence on national television.

This book is also a mini-history of the early decades of Bombay’s Hindustani cinema, and its pages are rich with little anecdotes featuring legends like—besides Devika Rani—Saadat Hasan Manto, Sashadhar Mukherjee, Leela Chitnis, Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Meena Kumari and B.R. Chopra. Sarojini Naidu and Jawaharlal Nehru make brief appearances too, as does Morarji Desai.For anyone interested in Hindi cinema of yesteryears—in its cosmopolitanism, camaraderie and charm—this thoroughly engaging book is a must read.
