The Gita for Children: Limited Celebratory Edition

Roopa Pai

It's one of the oldest books in the world

and India's biggest blockbuster bestseller!

But isn't it meant only

for religious old people?

But isn't it very long... and,

erm, super difficult to read?

But isn't the stuff it talks

about way too complex for

regular folks to understand?

Prepare to be surprised.

Roopa Pai's spirited, one-of-a-kind retelling of the epic conversation between Pandava prince Arjuna and his mentor and friend Krishna busts these and other such myths about the Bhagavad Gita. Lucid, thought-provoking and brimming with fun trivia, this book will stay with you long after you have turned the last page.

Roopa Pai

Roopa Pai, a Bengaluru-based writer, columnist and speaker, is one of India's best known children's authors. Many of her books, which cover a wide range of topics including popular science, history, economics, medicine and sci-fi fantasy, are bestsellers, and are enjoyed as much by adults as by children. Her most popular book, the award-winning The Gita for Children, has been translated into many Indian languages and is listed by Amazon India as one of the '100 Indian books to read in a lifetime'. Her TEDx talk 'Decoding the Gita: India's Book of Answers' has received over two million views to date.

When she is not writing, Roopa can be found teaching short introductory courses on ancient Indian wisdom to both children and adults. This computer engineer also leads groups of children and young people on history and heritage walks across her city, as part of her work as director of Bangalore Walks, a company she co-founded.
