I am not sure that I am a man said Yuvanashva I have created life outside me as men do But I have also created life inside me as women do What does that make me Will a body such as mine fetter or free me Among the many hundreds of characters who inhabit the Mahabharata perhaps the world s greatest epic and certainly one of the oldest is Yuvanashva a childless king who accidentally drinks a magic potion meant to make his queens pregnant and gives birth to a son This extraordinary novel is his story It is also the story of his mother Shilavati who cannot be king because she is a woman of young Somvat who surrenders his genitals to become a wife of Shikhandi a daughter brought up as a son who fathers a child with a borrowed penis of Arjuna the great warrior with many wives who is forced to masquerade as a woman after being castrated by a nymph of Ileshwara a god on full moon days and a goddess on new moon nights and of Adi natha the teacher of teachers worshipped as a hermit by some and as an enchantress by others Building on Hinduism s rich and complex mythology but driven by a very contemporary sensibility Devdutt Pattanaik creates a lush and fecund work of fiction in which the lines are continually blurred between men and women sons and daughters husbands and wives fathers and mothers Confronted with such fluidity the reader is drawn into Yuvanashva s struggle to be fair to all those here those there and all those in between, A decoding of Hindu mythology Hindus have one God They also have million gods male gods female gods personal gods family gods household gods village gods gods of space and time gods for specific castes and particular professions gods who reside in trees in animals in minerals in geometrical patterns and in man made objects Then there are a whole host of demons But no Devil In this groundbreaking book Dr Devdutt Pattanaik one of India s most popular mythologists seeks an answer to these apparent paradoxes and unravels an inherited truth about life and death nature and culture perfection and possibility He retells sacred Hindu stories and decodes Hindu symbols and rituals using a unique style of commentary illustrations and diagrams We discover why the villainous Kauravas went to heaven and the virtuous Pandavas all except Yudhishtira were sent to hell why Rama despite abandoning the innocent Sita remains the model king why the blood drinking Kali is another form of the milk giving Gauri and why Shiva wrenched off the fifth head of Brahma Constructed over generations Hindu myths serve as windows to the soul and provide an understanding of the world around us The aim is not to outgrow myth but to be enriched and empowered by its ancient potent and still relevant language, SITA AN ILLUSTRATED RETELLING OF THE RAMAYANA br It is significant that the only character in Hindu mythology a king at that to be given the title of ekam patni vrata devoted to a single wife is associated with the most unjust act of abandoning her in the forest to protect family reputation This seems a deliberate souring of an uplifting narrative Rams refusal to remarry to produce a royal heir adds to the complexity The intention seems to be to provoke thought on notions of fidelity property and self image br br And so the mythologist and illustrator Devdutt Pattanaik retells the Ramayana drawing attention to the many oral visual and written retellings composed in different times in different places by different poets each one trying to solve the puzzle in its own unique way br br This book approaches Ram by speculating on Sita her childhood with her father Janaka who hosted sages mentioned in the Upanishads her stay in the forest with her husband who had to be a celibate ascetic while she was in the prime of her youth her interactions with the women of Lanka recipes she exchanged emotions they shared her connection with the earth her mother and with the trees her sisters her role as the Goddess the untamed Kali as well as the demure Gauri in transforming the stoic prince of Ayodhya into God, In My Gita acclaimed mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik demystifies The Bhagavad Gita for the contemporary reader His unique approach thematic rather than verse by verse makes the ancient treatise eminently accessible combined as it is with his trademark illustrations and simple diagrams br In a world that seems spellbound by argument over dialogue vi vaad over sam vaad Devdutt highlights how Krishna nudges Arjuna to understand rather than judge his relationships This becomes relevant today when we are increasingly indulging and isolating the self self improvement self actualization self realization even selfies We forget that we live in an ecosystem of others where we can nourish each other with food love and meaning even when we fight br So let My Gita inform your Gita
