Publisher's Summary

Lakshmi massages Vishnu's feet. Is this male domination?

Kali stands on Shiva's chest. Is this female domination?

Shiva is half a woman. Is this gender quality? Why then is Shakti never half a man?

Taken literally, stories, symbols and rituals of Hindu mythology have much to say about gender relationships. Taken symbolically, they reveal many more things about humanity and nature. Which is the correct reading?

The third title in the bestselling Hindu Trinity series focuses on the goddess, and respected mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik tries to unravel the secrets locked within her stories, symbols and rituals.

Thank God for Devdutt

Devdutt always manages to open up portals to understanding the icons of Indian mythology better than ever.
A fantastic insight with enough mind-benders and revelations that satisfy even the most casual listener.

He reminds me of Dan Brown, really. I can only imagine how would a novel written by Devdutt would be.

Highly recommended book.
