It is an almost impressive act of penmanship to take such an exciting story and make it so god-awfully dull. I have got to find another translation.

This came as a recommended translation of The Bhagavad Gita. This book requires multiple readings and a serious study as there are so many nuggets of wisdom. I found the author‘s explanation of each chapter, before the translated Gita chapter very helpful for my comprehension. Now that I have completed my first read, I intend to revisit each chapter more slowly and deliberately. #MountTBR

I‘m not the target audience for this book which is a middle grade. I like middle grade books but I didn‘t enjoy this one as much as I would liked. The story was too long and confusing but this is an unpopular opinion. Most people like this series. I don‘t think I will continue with it. I liked Mini, so funny. This book I think is great to introduce children with Hindu mythology and folklore. 3⭐️

TheAromaofBooks Love this cover, though!! 2mo
Kar2b This one feel flat for me too, and I love her YA books. I wanted to like it so much, but 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2mo

Wow. These are so good, and my nieces are about to have a wild adventure.

For any #riordan fans out there, these are similar, and explore the ideas and religious figures of Hindu. The main character is bright, sassy and imaginative in a way that I would have loved to see as a child. Shoot, I love to see it now.

Gora | Rabindranath Tagore

#OnThisDay in 1924 Indian poet (and the first non-Western writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature) Rabindranath Tagore arrived in China for a lecture tour. The tour stirred controversy in Chinese intellectual circles, with the organizers accused of using Tagore's presence to further their own goals and ideals amid the powder keg of Chinese politics. 👇 #HistoryGetsLIT

TheKidUpstairs Tagore was also accused of using the tour to position himself as a guru or spiritual leader, but whether that was his intention was never confirmed. 4mo

Illustrated and adapted by a veteran Pixar animator, this is a beautiful retelling of a 2500-year-old legend, whittled down from three thousand pages of text to a much more manageable graphic novel. Amazing art and a good story
