Brilliant introduction to animals in Indian mythology
A unique feature of Hindu mythology is the key role played by animals, or pashu. The Puranas, ancient Hindu story chronicles, reveal that Brahma, the creator, had a son called Kashyapa, whose many wives gave birth to different types of pashu:

Timi gave birth to animals who swim
Vinata gave birth to animals who fly
Kadru gave birth to animals who crawl
Surabhi gave birth to animals with hooves
Sarama gave birth to animals with paws
Surasa gave birth to animals who defy classification
This book retells their stories. With over 75 gorgeously illustrated anecdotes, Devdutt Pattanaik reveals how our ancestors imagined the animal kingdom and the key role animals played in human lives.
