Publisher's Summary

Five children are having fun one evening, playing dumb charades, when Shiva appears and wants to join in! Shiva turns out to be the best at dumb charades, as well as in asking riddles. He can say so much with only his actions! He also tells the children wonderful stories with the help of the many objects he carries with him, like the rattle drum, the crescent moon and a fountain of water that rises from his head. Soon, thanks to Shiva’s playfulness, the children know much more about Shiva and the other gods - even more than their parents!

Excellence as ever

Where does Shiva Plays Dumb Charades rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is very innovative.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Shiva Plays Dumb Charades?

Shiva's puzzles.

What does Rupa Krishnan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was very expressive and kept us binded throughout the narration, I finished it in one go.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but the narration and content made me do it with no effort.

Any additional comments?

This is a very innovative way of educating what "Shiva"- represents in reality. Om Namah Shivay.
