Description
About The Book

AND LAND WAS BORN is a story from the Bhilala tribe who live in central India. The fantasy element in the story reflects the unfettered nature of the oral tradition. This book brings together picture and word in the spirit of that freedom and celebration.

In the beginning, the Bhilalas believe, there was only water. The harassed and wet subjects beg their lazy god to create land so that they can get dry and stay that way. Poor god is put to all sorts of trouble before this wish can be granted.

 

About The Author

Guna Baba's wild and wacky story appealed to the wild and wacky side of Sandhya Rao.

An editor with Tulika, she has written around 20 books, including the bestselling Ekki Dokki and the critically acclaimed My Friend the Sea and My Mother's Sari.

Uma Krishnaswamy is a student and teacher of art with a special interest in folk art and craft. She studied the painted walls from a documentary film based on this story, then blended in her own talent and imagination to create this unique book.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.
James, USA
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
