Giant idols under wraps, ready to be unfurled,
Colourful pandaals receive finishing touches

Victory of the goddess and a demon's defeat,
See how Ma Durga outshone even the mighty gods
How a woman achieved an impossible feat!

The book is great, my 2 - The book is great, my 2.5 year old absolutely loves it! Very annoyed that the MRP of this book is shown to be 950 Rs. when in fact it is only 350 and I ended up paying more than that! I should have just gone to a book store and picked it up.

Rated 3 out of 5

Story is engaging, book binding is horrible - Engaging story, my daughter loves reading this during the Durga Puja holidays but the binding is horrible. Every book we own in the "Amma tell me" series has fallen apart immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5
