Courage and cowardice, love and lust, wisdom and folly, loyalty and betrayal, forgiveness and revenge -- the 330 million gods and goddesses in the Indian pantheon mirror the face of all human emotions and experience. And each deity represents one aspect of the Supreme Principle that controls the universe: the all pervading force called Ishvara, Bhagwan or Brahman.

Stories about these deities find their origin in mythology that has its roots in ancient literature -- primarily the four Vedas and the Puranas. Following close are the two epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Subsequently, the different religions of the sub-continent have interpreted the stories according to their beliefs and traditions.

This collection brings together 22 titles from the Amar Chitra Katha series that tell stories woven around the Indian Gods and Goddesses: from the mighty Shiva and Vishnu to the much loved Durga and Ganesha; from the popular gods of the epics like Rama and Krishna to the lesser known like Indra and the Ashwini Kumars.

Bound in a sturdy hardcover book, these 22 magnificently illustrated comics will accompany the young reader throughout his or her childhood.
