An unusual collection of stories from the myths which will bring the gods right into the world of children!

Who made Kama disappear? Why is Yama always so serious? Will the two ever stop fighting?

Jayshree loves doing homework! But one day, instead of studying, she hears voices out in the garden and goes out to see who’s there. She meets a strange man called Kama. Poor Kama was made invisible by an angry Shiva once. Now that Jayshree can see him he shows her all the magic he can do—make butterflies appear, bees buzz, fill the garden with fragrant flowers. But then Yama appears, and he does not like playing at all! Yama believes only in working. Kama and Yama start fighting about who Jayshree will be friends with. Who do you think Jayshree will choose—the fun-loving, naughty Kama, or the stern, no-nonsense Yama?



Dr Devdutt Pattanaik studied medicine but decided he loves telling stories better. He feels stories are like Eclair sweets; if you chew long enough, you get a burst of chocolate that is locked inside. So rather than working as a doctor, he decided to write and tell ancient Indian stories and reveal the idea-chocolate locked within them. He believes these stories are the gifts of our ancestors. He has been doing this for a long time and even uses the wisdom of these stories to help businesses. He is currently Chief Belief Officer of Future Group.
