Stories from Rajatarangini – Tales from Kashmir


About the Book

For the first time the ancient historical text Rajatarangini which means ‘River of Kings’ has been simplified for the younger generation. The stories which were written by Kalhana, a famous eleventh-century historian-poet bring to light the economic, political and social conditions of his time, and give interesting glimpses of life, including intrigues, in the royal court.


Characters of the epics, such as Sri Krishna, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and many others find a place in the events and are drawn in various colors through all the stories giving a pictorial glimpse. Handed down from generation to generation, these stories cover Kashmir’s rich culture, traditions and beliefs.

The selections from the classic work make a scintillating reading. The book is must-keep for the library of a child who awaits an entry into the world of fantasy inspired from reality. The parents must also read it out to their toddlers as the book brings Jammu & Kashmir cultural heritage into a literary concept like never before.
