Review:

The Battle of Panchavati and Other Stories from Indian Scriptures by Divya Narain Upadhyaya is collection of seven short stories.
These stories are from different Indian Scriptures that we have grown up listening. The author has picked up such stories which will help today’s generation to revisit our culture, our tradition and insights into the great epics.
The first story ‘The Cosmic Dance’ describes how devastated Lord Shiva was after the death of his wife Sati and how he turns into Rudra.
‘The Battle of Panchavati’ is another very intriguing story describing how Lord Ram defeated all the Rakshasas at Panchavati during their exile which later lead to the war of Lanka.
The other stories very interesting as well.I love how each story is narrated in a way that all these great characters are very much relatable and there is so much to learn from them.
The writing style is very captivating and this is definitely a must read for Mythology Lovers and readers who want to start reading mythology.

Happy reading:)
