    Brilliant as usual

    I have been a fan of devdutt pattnaik for over a year now.In this book also he is at his best while analyzing Hindu mythology and its acceptance of queerness.The rich and diverse knowledge base and wisdom that is embedded in our ancient text is brilliantly explained by the authour.

    You cannot miss these popular stories revoving around gender metamorphosis

    The author not only narrates the legends but offers extensive commentary to place the stories in proper context.
    This book also inspired me to do research on the places, myths and people mentioned in the stories.
    Devdutt portrays a cast of very real characters, some of whom weren't my favorite till I read this book.
    What I like most is Devdutt Pattanaik's use of illustration to depict his ideas; the way my science teacher used diagrams.

    Just okay

    Overpriced.. is the first thing which came in my mind after receiving the book... It's a thin book comprises of few tales .. shikhandi is one of them (hardly 7-8 pages) I was expecting more.... Nothing to say about write-up..its good.. Most of the stories are known.. I wish it had some more content...

    Queerness celebrated..!

    Once again - Devdutt Pattanaik creates magic with his well researched stories from Indian mythology - that celebrate what is "queer" - the third sex - the ambiguity and differences that lie within this vast cosmos and how Hindu mythology has taught us to embrace that ambiguity and differences! I loved reading those stories - and they really are tales which no one ever tells us! However - i was disappointed that unlike other books by Mr. Pattanaik - where you get small nuggets of information a...

    Expectation not met!

    I am a fan of Devdutt Pattanaik writing. In this book, he is at his best while analyzing Hindu mythology and its acceptance of queernes, however for someone who has already read his other books, these stories are repeated, but for those of the authors questioning thought at the end of each stories. I would have liked some more detailed or researched content than the repeat of the previous stories which author has depicted in his earlier books.

    Good to read.

    Good to read. I read first time book by DP.
    My expectations was high. Title story is good but found it short. Was expecting details.
    But points were good. Other stories are just written in folktale style.

    Hated it!

    The book quality is too bad, I can see the pages are just xerox ed from original book. Though the delivery was quick but zero in quality parameters. Want to return the book but as I wanted to buy it from long can't do that, need to read it tonight.
