Or about the throne that gives anyone who sits on it the unique ability to dispense justice!
And how about the sculptor who managed to make magnificent statues with no hands at all?

From quarrels among gods and the follies of great sages to the benevolence of kings and the virtues of ordinary mortals, Sudha Murty spins fresh accounts of lesser-known stories in Indian mythology. Accompanied by fantastical illustrations and narrated in an unassuming fashion, The Sage with Two Horns is sure to delight fans of the beloved storyteller.
