Dashavatar
Soumya Ayer

Dashavatar is a collection of ten spell-binding stories for children. In each of the narratives, the world is on the brink of collapse, entrenched in vice and sin, when the Lord decides to intervene and rescue it. He takes on a variety of forms, sometimes splendorous, at other times disarmingly humble. From Matsya avatar, where Vishnu assumes the shape of a fish, to Vamana avatar, where he shrinks in size, from Krishna avatar, where He becomes the Blue One, the eternal flutist, to Kalki, the future, where He will ride astride a horse and reinstate justice, each of the stories speaks of the Lord's benevolence, and the triumph of good over evil.
