Olympus by Devdutt Pattnaik

 

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.

About Sprightly Spirit

“I dare do all that may become a man. Who dares more is none”. And all, may be. It may be the vigor. Or the spirit. Or the courage to avoid being “politically correct” or bent. And, ban all averse with immaculate overture of graciously fathomable words firm in views. Subtle. Justifying the undying conscience. Values. Knowledge. And, dares to stay true. True to own. True to the world. And, to the words. With a dream in eyes it exists. In you. In me. In all. The sprite that never shies away. The spirit that never dies!
