 Product Description – 

The sigiriya paw’ Based on ‘Maharana’, the great Buddhist chronicle of Sri Lanka, “is truly like one of the Puranas. But the style is so uniquely endearing that you don’t realise when the Purana entered the present, transiting seamlessly through history. The anxious characters of ancient past, driven into a vicious circle of lust and excesses, rivalries and conspiracies, consumed by their fears and need for revenge; and the Intimacies and heartbreaks of their relationships – all blended together into such a compelling narrative of abuse of power and human anguish that we can see the present day world reflected in it every step of the way.
