      Munshi has humanized Krishna as much as possible in these series but yet has maintained an aura of mystique that will make you adore his Godliness while it is juxtaposed with normal human-like behaviour.The first part Magic Flute is where he gives you the wonderful background story of Krishna’s ancestors and we learn about Yadavas in general and their very many clans. Krishna and his elder brother Balarama are spirited away from Mathura right after their birth and the miraculous happenings tha [...]

      #Re-read - 1.I cannot stop myself when I see a book by K. M. Munshi just lying on my desk. Brilliant writing throughout! By far, the first book deals with His naughty and eventful childhood, his mischievous ways around the milkmaids of Vrindavan, the 'rasa' which he was so famous for and of course fulfilling the prophecy of being the 'Deliverer'. One cannot help admiring how perfect He is - in every way possible. The love between them( Radha & Krishna ) is so phenomenal, intense, pure and di [...]

      Awesome book, trying to bridge the gap between mythology and reality. Stellar work from one of the finest Indian author from colonial era. Unique style of Dr. K M Munshi, creates sheer magic; transporting the readers to a different age. I get reminded of lots of stories I heard as a kid, from my grandmother and grandfather. Looking forward to read the next one in the series.

      An extraordinary tale of Krishna and the prophecy that he had to fulfill. I remember my grandparents telling me bits and pieces of Krishna's and Balaram's adventures but I had never got the full picture up until now when I got a chance to read this book. This story is beautifully written offering a second, more realistic perspective to other more magical version of this same story. This book took me straight to that era where Krishna was born and I could easily imagine and experience their life, [...]

      It seems like people who worship krishna believes in charming nature, love, beauty, and power! krishna is a dark skinned boy who been chosen by the Indian gods to be the savor of his people, actually he has been chosen even before he was born! in another word he never been a human , he was born as forme of God to a human couple!I think by reading this book you will get a some what clear image of this religion most wonderful values such as; devotion, honour, love, dignity, justice, wisdom, courag [...]

      Its 1st book of a series of books on Shri Krishna Bhagwan.The series is named as Krishnavatar.I am eager to read all books of the series and keep them with me, for entire life.The series is written nicely and is entertaining. You can't stop once you start reading it. The book contains lots of inspirational and thought-provoking ideas/lines, whatever you say.I have found myself more closer to Bhagwan Shri Krishna, while reading this book. Thank you, K.M.Munshi Ji for writing this book.Thank you, [...]

      K.M. Munshi loves Krishna and his love lies bleeding on every page of this wonderful series of books. I first read all 7 volumes between the ages of 8 and 12. And since then, this series has stuck with me as one of the best-written works on the life and loves of Krishna. Highly recommended for all lovers of the blue flautist with the peacock feather in his crown.

    10. Vaibhav Sharma on said:

      Its 1st book of a series named as Krishnavatar.Pretty Good I must say. The language is very very simple and sometimes seems like a children story book. One good thing about this book is that it doesn't show Lord Krishna as an Avatar but shows him as a Human being with immense spiritual power ,logic reasoning and faith in himself .May be these qualities lead him to be an Avatar in later lore.

    11. Anu Ranganath on said:

      Great book, looking forward to reading the remaining in the series.Vol 2, is low in supply. had to buy in India, so took my sweet time to read the book.This is a classic collection and a must for every reader who enjoys this genre.

    12. Akhil on said:

      The best part of this book is when the author explains how to morally enfeeble people under a tyrannical or corrupt author - open the purse strings of the state and the people will never except anything else from the ruler. This weakens Dharma and leads to total moral and material ruin.

      Every time I encounter the tawdry and bowdlerized versions of Indian mythology from the likes of Amish Tripathi, I always remember Kulapati Munshiji and his beautiful Krishnavatara books I read as a teen. His writing style was so refreshing.

    15. Ashish Jaituni on said:

      This is the first of the seven books on The Krishnavatara by K. M. Munshi. The volume one turned out to be good and informative. I look forward to reading the remaining six volumes.
