Quantity:

Krishna is perhaps the most popular Hindu divinity. From time immemorial he has captured the imagination of the Hindu mind, and, in his own inimitable way, provided succour to millions of believers. Krishna: The Playful Divine combines aspects of classical Krishna lore with contemporary appraisals of the god to give us a compelling and insightful biography of India's most popular deity.

About the Author:

PAVAN K. VARMA is with the Indian Foreign Service and has been sent on diplomatic assignments to Bulgaria, Romania and New York, where he was with the Indian mission to the United Nations. He has two earlier books to his credit. The first is Ghalib: The Man, The Times and the second, Mansions At Dusk: The Havelis of Old Delhi.REVIEWS: "An extraordinary book...The quality of the prose, the literary verve...could hardly be improved...The puritans will pout and purists pronounce purple pomposities. Let them. There is so much pep in the book, that it will leave the fault finders breathless." FRONTLINE"We love Krishna because we would love to do what he did, but are afraid of doing...These inexplicable aspects of Krishna's character are boldly dilated on in Pavan K. Varma's recently published biography." KHUSHWANT SINGH"(Varma) has done a fair job of piecing the story together...The prose is lyrical, in the style of the Puranas from where he has collected most of the myths about Krishna. With fluid ease quotations from Surdas, Mirabai and other poets who "knew" Krishna intimately, are woven into the narrative. INDIA TODAY
