Description

Myths are considered to be the keys to unlocking the psyche of ancient civilizations. Presented in this volume is a selection of the classical myths and ancient legends of rivers, forests, temples, great sages and kings of India along with the lights on religious, philosophical, social and mystic concepts that have been the prime elements in moulding the life of the nation through the ages.

What is more, the work outlines the significant spiritual and literary masterpieces of yore that have influenced the perennial Indian creativity in all its streams – art, architecture, dance and music.

The author’s interpretative observations go a long way in revealing to the readers the subtle, often occult, import of the subcontinent’s numerous hoary traditions.

One of the foremost creative writers of modern India who writes with equal felicity in Oriya as well as in English, Manoj Das is a recipient of a number of awards including the Sahitya Akademi Award as well as Honorary D. Litt. From several universities.
