Did you know that you need a Hayagriva to slay a Hayagriva?

Or that living beings can be created from something as gross as ear-wax or sweat?

Or that the way you pronounce a Sanskrit word can change your destiny, turning you into a buffalo instead of a queen?

Demons and Demonesses of Hindu Mythology takes you millions of years back in time when beings as tall as mountains walked the ground, their every stride causing earthquakes and tsunamis; when they stayed in their mother’s wombs for thousands of years before being born; when they transformed into lions or buffaloes or elephants in the blink of an eye and when encountering beings with five heads, three legs, twenty arms or indeed torsos without heads was not an exception, but the norm.

Plunge into the Garbhodaka Ocean where it all started and immerse yourself in the stories of some of the most exotic, magical and powerful asuras and rakshasas in Hindu mythology.

 

About the Author

Priya Narayanan is a designer, writer, traveller, teacher and mother, not necessarily in that order. She runs her own design practice under the twin banners Tatva and Soma and is professor at CEPT University, her alma mater. She is also a published poet and author. While her poems and short stories have appeared in various anthologies and literary magazines, she has four children’s books under her belt and many more lurking in the deepest corners of her computer, waiting for their moment in the sun. When not practising and teaching design, she likes to travel solo and read everything that comes her way. You can learn more about Priya on her website, www.priyanarayanan.in
