'Prem Purana' by Usha Narayanan ~ Review

PREM PURANA: MYTHOLOGICAL LOVE STORIES by Usha Narayanan


BLURB
Stories of love and extraordinary devotion 
No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, kings and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love also undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love, Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tested till almost nothing remained. 
Tormented by passion, wracked by betrayal, torn by the agony of separation, love in its many splendored forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories of Prem Purana.

Hence, some parts of this review might end up offending the believers (you shouldn't be though if you're a rational person...not that I care anyway). So, if you are …
