Description

This collection of essays, articles and talks forms an authentic overview of Indian myth, legend and philosophy. Grippingly retold in a rich and distinctive style, it is a passionate, personal journey through the vast landscape of Indian myth.

India’s connection with her myth is a living, pulsating part of her psyche. It is the unique flavor of the wonder that is India. Myth and Me-The Indian Story is a handbook on Indian myth aimed at the discerning reader.

It is also a celebration of the magic of Indian story, its insightful and visionary aspects, distilled to crystal clarity for the general reader both here and abroad. It fills a genuine gap in the literature on India whose past is still very much her presents.
