    Take for instance the Yugas or the four quarters of time. What is not found here will not be found elsewhere. At pages, this is not a book most children will finish in a single sitting. Each god is given attributes and weapons and an animal vahana or vehicle: Shiva's primary attribute is the trident or trishul and his vehicle is the bull; Vishnu's primary attributes include the conch and discus, while his vehicle is Garuda the There are several deities and divinities who are a part of the history of Hinduism, each with an elaborate literature establishing his or her divinity.

    The story of an unlikely friendship that develops between a football-loving, meek teenager, Chintamani Dev Gupta, and Ghatotkacha, son of Bhima, the second Pandava, and Hidimbi, a rakshasi, when Chintamani time-travels inexplicably during a camping trip to the Sat Tal, Lost in Time could also well be read as a cautionary tale against the evils of social segregation. She divides her time between New Delhi and Goa. A Kumaoni by birth, she married to Rajiv Gokhale when she was eighteen. Gokhale had in mind a target audience of young adults - "from 12 upwards who would understand the nuances.
