Book Review : Ganga – The Constant Goddess by Anuja Chandramouli

Reading Time: 3 minutes

I have always been amazed at the author’s language style. It always seems to carry a poetic quality and sounds melodies which is an odd way to describe a book but it is what it is for me. Just as with the previous books, Ganga too takes on a beautiful mythological journey and in between taking in all the snippets of other added mythological stories we have all grown up, listening.  The difference being the language and the way these stories are narrated and put together to create a beautiful experience

Ganga – The Constant Goddess Official Synopsis

Believed to be the liquid manifestation of Shakti and the nurturer of the three worlds with her life-sustaining waters, Goddess Ganga is the epitome of beauty and purity, famous for her indomitable spirit and boundless charm. Renowned as a devoted daughter, a caring mother, a passionate lover, and a merciful saviour, she is here to absorb and absolve us of our sins. A constant goddess, she is part of the Indian ethos, revered, and loved across the ages.

The exquisite epic that is Ganga’s story, from her miraculous origins, her sojourn in the heavens, her poignant relationships with the divine trinity, the birth of her sons—Bhishma and Kartikeya, and her descent into a wicked world that is not worthy of her, is dazzlingly told by Anuja Chandramouli. Without this Goddess, life as we know it will be over, for her righteous retribution will be terrifying.
This book is a vibrant retelling of the story of Ganga, who has the power to save us all and bestow the precious gift of moksha, embracing saints and sinners alike with her all-encompassing compassion.

Ganga – The Constant Goddess RWAT Take

The book puts together the story of Goddess Ganga and weave in all the small and big aspects of the mythological life of the goddess along with glimpses of all other Gods and Goddess from hindu mythology. I feel that the book would appeal to people of all ages and sects irrespective of how much you know about the stories and Gods & goddesses mentioned in the book

The one thing you need to look forward to in the book is the language. I simply love the writing style of the author and her choice of language. very rhythmic and easy to read. it flows in very smoothly and with a satin finish and i love that quality to the book more than the theme and other aspects
