Kamadeva - The God of Love


About the Book
Kamadeva, the charming wielder of the sugarcane bow and the flower-tipped arrow, born out of the wellspring of Brahma’s latent passion, has for long remained an enigma. This enthralling story of the God of Desire explores his many wondrous adventures, as well as his heady romance with Rati his chief consort.
Best friends with Indra, the Kings of the Gods; tutor to the Apsaras in the art of lovemaking, Kamadeva lives a dream life in the magnificent Kingdom of Amaravathi—until danger strikes when he incurs the wrath of Shiva because of a preordained curse. Follow Kama as the hurtles towards his destiny and the Destroyer’s dreaded third eye. Find out if he will rise from the ashes to reign supreme as the King of Hearts or if he will be doomed to spend an eternity as Ananga—the bodiless one.
In Kamadeva: The God of Desire, the author masterfully marries imagination with stellar research to bring to vivid life one of the most intriguing Gods of the Hindu pantheon. Laced with wit and narrated in contemporary flavour. Kamadeva will take you on a rollicking ride into the heart of desire and its tantalizing dark side.
