About the Book: Shyam: An Illustrated Retelling of the Bhagavata

In the forest of insecurities, is it possible to discover humanity through pleasure?

Can we stop seeing each other as predator, prey, rival or mate, and rediscover ourselves as lovers?

Does the divine reside in sensual delight, in emotional intimacy and in aesthetic experience?

Yes, yes, yes.

That is the promise of the Bhagavata.

The Bhagavata is the story of Krishna, known as Shyam to those who find beauty, wisdom and love in his dark complexion. It is the third great Hindu epic after the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. However, this narration was composed in fragments over thousands of years, first as the Harivamsa, then as the Bhagavata Purana, and finally as the passionate songs of poet-sages in various regional languages.

This book seamlessly weaves the story from Krishnas birth to his death, or rather from his descent to the butter-smeared world of happy women to his ascent from the blood-soaked world of angry men.
