Eyes On The Peacock's Tail (English)

Author : Vayu Naidu
Illustrator : Mugdha Sethi

In the beginning, the peacock had no markings on its shimmering blue-green tail. The sun king's daughter sees this beautiful creature one day and falls in love. Much against her father's wishes, she marries the peacock. What happens then and how the peacock gets ‘eyes' on its tail is what this folktale from Rajasthan is all about. The bold, stylised illustrations are adapted from traditional phad cloth paintings found in the region.
