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.

Simply ExcellentI 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 ageKudos 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.
