BLURB

Few things draw a more innate response from us than the dramatic majesty of nature’s skypower. The sense of danger and awe evoked by the spectacular scale of visuals and deep, threatening, growl of thunder have always triggered man’s first instinct to run. It is no wonder they also inspired mythology. We can easily imagine the collision of the Chinese god of thunder, Lei Gong, with his wife, Dian Mu, the goddess of lightening, in love and fury. While most of us now live in the congestion of an urban existence, the wide vista of a natural landscape and incoming storm still draws an excitement and respect that we must have shared with the writers of these myths, knowing we face an unpredictable and powerful opponent against whom we are no match. [Leela Shanker]
