|•In their book Dhruva and Ashtavakra, Shailaja Ganguly and Malati Shenoy compile two well-known tales from Indian culture. The protagonist of the first tale, Dhruva, is a little child who turns into a follower of Lord Vishnu and gains entrance into paradise.
•In the second tale, a little child named Ashtavakra overcomes physical disabilities to become a learned sage and teacher. The life of Dhruva is a tale of tenacity and dedication. Young Dhruva was abandoned by his father and tormented by his stepmother.
•Dhruva engages in a challenging spiritual practice in an effort to find a means to win his father's affection, which finally attracts Lord Vishnu. Ashtavakra's tale is one of discernment and acceptance of oneself. Ashtavakra's father initially disapproved of him since he was born with eight birth defects.
•He later develops into a knowledgeable sage and teacher, and the Ashtavakra Gita, a holy book still cherished today, contains his lessons. The book has gorgeous illustrations and a straightforward retelling of these two timeless tales for readers of all ages.
•It serves as an excellent introduction to Indian tradition and imparts insightful teachings about commitment, tenacity, knowledge, and acceptance of oneself.
