About the Course:
Myths are considered more than just stories. They are believed to be an integral part of culture, both reflecting and influencing it. It is thus important to re-read them to understand the underlying patterns and attitudes that may be influencing us even today. This two session course will look at Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s Palace of Illusions and Volga’s The Liberation of Sita as books that expose the challenges that lie embedded in Mahabharata and Ramayana from a feminist perspective.
