1) Saraswati's Secret River: Fun in Devlok An unusual collection of stories from the myths by the author of Jaya: An Illustrated Retelling of the Mahabharata and Myth=Mithya which will bring the gods right into the world of children! Filled with delightful illustrations each book in this new series will introduce thoughts and aspects from our ancient treasure trove of stories for today s children.

Why did River Saraswati disappear? Will the vanished river ever reappear? Can you make a river flow in your school?

Mrs Sivakami, principal of Madame Mira High School, is astonished when she finds Goddess Saraswati wandering the corridors of her school. The goddess is in search of a missing river! To show her the ancient river and what happened to it, Saraswati puts Mrs. Sivakami on the back of Hansa, her goose, and off they go flying. The teacher sees some schools where students come and go as they please, and others where everyone has a parrot head! She then begins to understand why it is important to make the river flow again, and how she can bring the secret river to her very own school.

2) Kama vs Yama: Fun in Devlok 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?

Indra Finds Happiness : Fun in Devlok Little Harsha was sad, so a cloud flew him up to Indra s palace, just to show Harsha that the king of gods was sadder than him! There, with his new friends Indra and Airavata, the six-tusked white elephant, Harsha sees so many amazing things a wish- fulfilling tree, a pot of never-ending gold, and a potion that keeps him healthy. Then Indra thinks of a naughty plan to steal Vasishta s cow! When he catches Indra, a very angry Vasishta tells him the secret to being happy. (And no, it has nothing to do with ice creams, video games or wish-fulfilling trees.)

But will the king of gods learn his lesson finally and stop being sad?

4) Shiva Plays Dumb Charades: Fun in Devlok Five children are having fun one evening, playing dumb charades, when Shiva appears and wants to join in! Shiva turns out to be the best at dumb charades, as well as in asking riddles. He can say so much with only his actions! He also tells the children wonderful stories with the help of the many objects he carries with him, like the rattle drum, the crescent moon and a fountain of water that rises from his head. Soon, thanks to Shiva s playfulness, the children know much more about Shiva and the other gods even more than their parents!

5) Gauri and the Talking Cow : Fun in Devlok Little girl Gauri thinks milk comes from packets, till she meets Sweety the talking cow. Sweety tells Gauri about the first cow on earth, Surabhi, and how she provided so many useful things to man fuel, manure, medicine and shelter. Sweety narrates stories about a king who found good luck because he gifted cows to many people, and how another king was turned into a lizard because he was not careful about who he gave his cows to! Sweety also tells Gauri how Krishna the cowherd looked after his beloved animals, and why Kali decided to comb her hair.

Join Gauri in a magical world of talking animals as she finds out why the cow is a really cool animal!
