Shiva in the City of Nectar


Fifty-four divine tales of Shiva in ancient IndiaYoung Throbbing with non-stop excitement, Shiva in the City of Nectar sweeps across Heaven, Earth and the Underworld, narrating the exploits of the mysterious and powerful blue-throated god. One after another, the tales unfold the follies of ancient devas, asuras, sages, men and mythical beasts. And through them all, Shiva blithely takes on the guise of beggar, saint, monarch, merchant, fisherman, hunter, warrior and woodcutter; walking through the three worlds to slay rampaging demons, perform his Dance of Bliss and embrace good and bad alike.Shiva is portrayed in all his multi-faceted mystiquethe tender lover who woos and weds Goddess Meenakshi; the eternal Guru who dispenses wisdom; the fierce avenger whose third eye flashes fire; the generous benefactor who showers blessings on his devotees; and, above all, the gentle prankster who embodies the essence of Vedic faith.Preetha Rajah Kannan lives in Madurai, where she is a homemaker and mother of two. She has written extensively for the New Indian Express and contributed short stories for children in the Express School Magazine. Her story ‘The Tale of an Ice Cream’ was published by Penguin in their anthology, Blogprint.Another short story, ‘Moving Out’, was published by Unisun as part of the anthology, Two is Company and Other Stories.
