Aranyani The Courtesan's Lament
Aranyani The Courtesan's Lament
Description

About the Book:

A tale of a hunter and a courtesan: the brave, noble Vanu, huntsman of the forest and the beautiful, graceful Aranyani, child of the mountains. Theirs is a love that reverberates through time, a story that remains s eternal as the waters of the Ganga.

In their escape from Chromius, the callous Greek Yavana, and the proud Prince Harisena, and their search for Kashmir, the land of thousands of blossoms, the lovers encounter a place and its people that are vibrant in the sheer diversity of language, landscape and religious benefits.

This was a time of transition and change, of journeys and wanderings, of mysticism and spirituality. Set in an age of lush colours and exotic fragrances, strange myths and noble honour, the world of Aranyani and Vanu in Ancient India.

About the Author:

Stephen Alter writes and lives in Mussoorie. He is the author of nine books and has taught creative writing at MIT and American University in Cairo.

  • Except Aranyani is Goddess of forests... Not child of the mountains; that's Parvati - also Goddess of love and fertility. Parvatis father was King of the Mountains and Parvata is one word for mountain. Parvati implies "she" of the mountain.

    That's like, Religious Studies 101, dude. Creative writing is cool, but you can't change a deities whole identity to that of another's.
