    Description
    It is a popular belief that the Ramayana is idealistic, while the Mahabharata is realistic. Yet these two epics have identical building blocks, identical themes, and identical history. In this ground-breaking book, Devdutt Pattanaik, India’s most popular mythologist, explores the similarities and dissimilarities between the two epics in a ‘playful comparison’ accompanied by his signature illustrations. Whether it is the family structure, forest exile, or war, the comparison between the two epics proves a startling point—the Mahabharata is in fact a reaction to the events in the Ramayana. Ideas in this book are distributed over 56 chapters. In temple ritual, Vishnu is offered 8 different meals daily, different on all seven days of the week—56 dishes in all. May each chapter serve as a mouth-watering offering to the Vishnu within you.

    Just wow!

    it's a very interesting read, with some great insights, analogies and the comparisons made were relevant, though not all. it's nice how he has drafted his understanding of the epics into such coherent way!specially something that has been re written so many times! the folk lores included are interesting and give a new twist, shows there is no lack of imagination in our country!

    Worst experience ever!

    This book came in worst package. Book was all crumbled and messy. And it has marks of bent cover and pages inside are also folded.
