7 Secrets From Hindu Calendar Art (English) (paperback) Price: Rs.161

7 Secrets from Hindu Calendar Art is a book written by Devdutt Pattanaik that explores the Hindu calendar art. Hindu mythology talks of hundreds and thousands of gods and goddesses. It also consists of various characters that form an essential part of the Hindu mythology. These gods, goddesses, and characters are visually represented through calendar art. This calendar art is colorful and fantastic. However, the author in this book explains that this art is a democratic expression of a mythic imagery. This imagery was initially restricted to temple walls and palm leaf manuscripts, but with the calendar, this form of art has reached the common man. The book comprises the portraits of the Hindu pantheon of gods along with the associated stories. The Hindu mythology is full of symbols, and each image is like one of the pieces of the ancient metaphysical puzzle. This book tries to decode the symbols and hence successfully unleashes the wisdom behind the legends. A Black and white representation of the imageries are used in the book so that the reader does not get inflicted by colors. Moreover, the emphasis is more on the visual meaning rather than the quality of the image.


Born on December 11, 1970, Devdutt Pattanaik is a physician by profession. His other famous books include Jaya: An Illustrated Retelling of the Mahabharata, Myth = Mithya: A Handbook of Hindu Mythology, 7 Secrets of Shiva, and The Pregnant King. However, Pattanaik later chose to become a mythologist and consultant. Also, all his works revolve around myths, mythology, and management. Born in Mumbai, he completed his graduation in medicine from the Grant Medical College. He also completed a course in Comparative Mythology from the Mumbai University. He had initially started his career from the Pharma and Healthcare industry

A decent Read

Its a good read, especially if you are not aware of the Hindu deity's forms,
figures and avatars. some of the author's insight into the secrets are his
own insight into what he feels are what we see in the hindu calendar posters.

good read

i got this product for a great discount. The information is good. However, would have loved the book more if the contents images were in colour. Otherwise, it is a good read.
