KRISHNA BOOK 3 FLUTE OF VRINDABAN (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.119

Krishna Book 3 Flute Of Vrindavan is the third installation in the Krishna Coriolis series by Ashok K. Banker, which tells the story of Krishna’s childhood and his life in Vrindavan.

Summary Of The Book

Krishna Book 3 Flute Of Vrindavan retells the story of the beloved prankster god, Krishna, and his naughty ways which endeared him to the community of Vrindavan.

The ninth avatar of the Lord Vishnu, Krishna is renowned for his naughty but lovable ways. His mischievous ways see him herding cattle, playing pranks on the villagers and teasing the gopis along with his older brother Balaram and his friends. One instance also sees him gather an army of monkeys to raid the village homes for their butter. His charming demeanor and proficiency with the flute, nevertheless, endears him to the entire village, who both grumble at and love his naughty ways.

His divine nature is soon revealed to his parents, as in one instance, he shows the entire planet in his mouth to his mother. Another situation sees him slaying Putana the demoness. Another instance shows him vanquishing the asuras who were sent to kill him. He emerges victorious from every danger and remains unscathed. His mortal parents are unable to accept their child’s divine nature and insist on treating him like a regular boy.

The book is action packed with many legendary battles being portrayed like Kamsa’s Kabbadi Battle with Jarasandha’s men, Krishna’s battle with Putana and Trnavarta and his battle with Kraunchya, the demon bird. The mythological tapestry weaved by Banker reveals the entertaining aspects of the stories that is a part of Indian society. The book moves from places like Mathura, Vrindavan and Gokul in this recreation of the fascinating legend.

Lovely:-)

Sweet, cute, fantastic. the antics of young Krishna never fail to delight you. The age old stories of Krishna-leela come alive in the able hands of Ashok Banker. Definitely worth the price and the time... Eagerly awaiting the next book...

Simply Excellent

I have collection of all the Banker books and I just love his writing. Flute of Vrindavan is up to the mark as his previous ones. The growing up of Krishna, his relation with Balram and how Kansa gets closer to Jarasandha is very nicely shown. I almost felt for Kansa (after his unlucky experiences in previous two parts).....Must read for those who want to enjoy Krishna's childhood with a new perspective....Also, it is difficult for me to be a critic. One can always learn something from any book

Mythology for a new age

Kudos to Ashok Banker for reintroducing the rich mythic history of our country to a new generation of Indians. In an age of increasing westernisation, this may well be what our youth need.
