My grandmother recently pulled out a bunch of old papers, and I discovered this comic in one of the piles. Encouraging me read it, she hoped that I would enrich my currently almost non-existent knowledge of Hinduism, the faith into which I am born. While reading it, which didn’t take very long, I decided that it would be worth my while - and yours, Dear Reader - to put this up on my blog so that others would benefit from the telling of this religious tale. Here’s hoping that you enjoy it.
Now, the text is rife with all manner of English errors, hence the inclusion of this series of posts under the "English?" label. But what's a little poor grammar and diction when it comes to speaking of the divine, especially when it has been translated into this foreign tongue?
The text that I have included has been taken verbatim from the comic book - or "illustrated storybook" as I shall now refer to it - so much so, that where the printed text is both illegible and undecipherable, I have been forced to include a "___". Also, sometimes you may notice that the text and the images aren't in sync; there's a pic-only instance in this narrative.
All these little details apart, however, I do hope you read it, and better still, that you add information, your own comments to this series or offer me some assistance by correcting any egregious errors in the way this story has been told.
Thank you. Now, immediately below, here are the links to the "Life Story of Tirupati Balaji in Pictures."
