About the Book

Keshava, A Magnificent Obsession are folklores associated with the legend of Lord Krishna. This is a book of all whom Krishna loved and imbibed life into, be it the Tulsi plant, the flute, the tree where he romanced with his beloved Radhe in Vrindavan. Lord Krishna loved the Lotus flower that remained fragrant and pure despite the muck surrounding it, which was Krishna’s message of life as well. The book also introduces us to Kamdhenu, better known as the wish fulfilling cow and a constant companion of Kaanha the cowherd, and the relevance of Shankh, the conch in Dwarikadish Krishna the emperor’s life.
