India’s bestselling and probably the most popular mythology writer of this decade Devdutt Pattanaik is back with new book ‘Olympus’. The book narrates the Greek mythology where it is compared with Amravati, home of the Hindu devas. The book covered Greek Mythology and the connections with other Myths have been explored and Indian mythology is compared. Zeus, leader of Olympians, wields a thunderbolt like Indra, and rides an eagle like Vishnu. The feats of the Greek hero Heracles, known to Romans as Hercules, reminded many of Krishna, as did his name,Hari-kula-esha or lord of the Hari clan. The Greek epic of a husband sailing across the sea with a thousand ships to bring his wife, Helen, back from Troy seems strikingly similar to the story of Ram rescuing Sita from Lanka.
Grab Olympus: An Indian Retelling of the Greek Myths and explore a new world of fascinating stories.
