About the author
Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author with more than 25 titles to her name, all bestsellers on Amazon. She has grown up on listening to stories from Indian Mythology—tales from the Ramayana, Mahabharata, stories about Ganesha, Karthikeya, Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma and more. Later, she went on to devour books in the genre, right from Rajaji’s works to Amar Chitra Katha comics that kept her fascinated through adolescence as well as adulthood.
Recently, the author decided to come up with narratives straight out of mythology, bringing the scenes of yore alive to young minds and even the older generation who continue to be enthralled by these tales. Sundari brings you stories from the Indian Heritage that is rich in its hues, told as is in simple English so that young minds have an opportunity to know more about our roots.
