Every year, the eagerly awaited monsoon brings to an abrupt end the harsh summer in the Indian subcontinent. The meteorological events that culminate in this season of life giving rain have naturally influenced the culture and literature of this region throughout history. Gautama Vajracharya painstakingly examines and brings to light the aspects of ancient Indian art and literature directly influenced by the monsoon, including the ceiling paintings at Ajanta and unusual Newari baby shower festivals. Frog Hymns and Rain Babies is a unique contribution to Indian art history, with new information and an original approach to the depth of the monsoon's influence on the subcontinent. It is extensively illustrated to ensure that the true visual imagery of the author's textual imagination reaches the reader. Printed Pages: 212 with numerous colour illustrations.
