The Indian epics, such as the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Shiva stories, have been re-written for hundreds of years, each new interpretation bringing fresh interest in these ancient sources.
Writers in India such as Ashok Banker and Amish Tripathi have given these myths a makeover and expanded the genre, reaching new readers and making this one of fastest growing areas of literature in South Asia.
Join Ashok and Amish, as they share the stories of their successes for the first time in the UK. Introduced by Cortina Butler, Director Literature, British Council. Moderated by Bhavit Mehta.
In partnership with the British Council.
