      Sakti and Her Episodes: On the Basis of Ancient Indian Tradition and Mythology by Pushpendra Kumar Sharma and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at India is a Hindu State; While over 80% of the Indian population are Hindus, it is inaccurate to call the country a Hindu state.

More than a decade ago, Samit Basu wrote the high-selling The Simoqin Prophecies, simultaneously “epic fantasy” in the tried and tested tradition of Tolkien and irreverent spoof of the genre a la Terry followed it up with the equally successful The Manticore’s.

      Every mythology has its obscurities, inconsistencies, and absurdities, but the crucial point is that myths attempt to give form to the cosmos and meaning to human life. Most modern scholars divide the subject into three principal categories: pure myth, heroic saga, and the folk tale. Pure myth is both primitive science and primitive religion. Compares and contrasts Indian mythology with the stories of the Bible, ancient Egypt, Greece, Scandinavia, and Mesopotamia, while exploring the rich tapestry within 99 classic myths. The author unlocks the mysteries of the narratives, rituals, and artwork of ancient India to reveal the rich mythic traditions that have empowered millions of human beings for centuries.
