I am a big fan of Devdutt Pattanaik and the way he brings those myths to life with this narrative style and cartoons. I have read most of his books and loved his Jaya, which is the story of Mahabharata with a collection of so many unheard local folk stories. His ideas on culture comparison between the west and east, past and present makes sense and brings about a new outlook on culture and religion. I attended a talk by him in Santa Clara on culture comparisons and it was really awesome. Got to interact with him too 🙂
Here is a link to a twitter page where he has the Mahabharata in 36 tweets! Enjoy!
