Krishnavatara by K. M. Munshi

Just began reading the series of 8 books  - Krishnavatara, written by Shri K M Munshi, founder of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, among his many other pusuits. Its a delightful series, narration is excellent and its captivating, hard to put it away:-). Yes, the subject he is writing about is all too colourful and powerful and the easy reading style in which its written, is a pleasure to read. 

Its as if he has captured every detail of HIS life and there are so many stories tucked away that many wouldn't have heard of. Reading the book gives the reader the same effect he / she would get if a grandpa / grandma were to tell the story. I haven't finished the series, yet, and I am looking forward to reading it all.

The only suggestion I have for Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is to bring this out as a Collectors' Series too... I mean a nice hard bound, better quality paper and larger fonts. I highly recommend this series a "must-have" collection in every home.
