Shakun Narain had her early education in Spain. It
was her enquiring mind which led her to go deeper into the whys and the
wherefores of Hindu customs and traditions which resulted in her authoring this
book "Hindu Customs and Beliefs" and another book "Symbolisms in
the Ramayana" also published by the Bhavan.
Shakun is widely traveled and
has a keen interest in music. She conducts classes on Hindu philosophy where she
instills an awareness of the rich ness of the Hindu heritage in the young minds.
What Others Say
A spirit of enquiry often opens
gates to vast expanses of knowledge. While millions follow Hindu customs,
beliefs and rituals blindly, Shakun Narain made a diligent study of them and
tried to grasp their meaning, purpose and significance.
The volume, though small, is a
treasure house of knowledge and wisdom.

"Hindu Customs and
Beliefs" is thought-provoking. Shakun Narain has explained in simple and
lucid language, scientific roots of ancient beliefs, superstitions, symbolism of
deities and educational values of Hindu scriptures.
The book exhorts us to
understand ourselves and it reflects the personality of the writer.
