INK Talks and SACHI, Society for Art & Cultural Heritage of India, present Indian author and mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik in A Discussion of the Ramayana.
Bringing his creative lens, Devdutt explores the beauty and timelessness of the ancient Ramayana epic through new and fresh perspectives. With his unique, contemporary take on myth, which he defines as subjective truth, he sheds new insights on the Ramayana’s enduring appeal across two millennia, and examines its particular relevance for contemporary society, breaking free of the traditional/non traditional ideological approach. Join SACHI and INK as Devdutt brings into focus the epic’s immersive and harmonizing influence across generations and cultures.
