Myth = Mithya: A Handbook of Hindu Mythology is a comprehensive book that is an eye opener for not just those who want to know more about Hindu mythology. The book is filled with viewpoints that make the reader take a second look at the Hindu religion.

Author Devdutt Pattanaik is a leading expert on ancient India, from scriptures to traditions and mythology. This book is a great beginning for those who wish to delve into Hindu mythology and want to know more about the 330 million deities that comprise it. Pattanaik breaks down the complicated and often contradictory Indian mythology decoding Hindu symbols and traditions and provides a context to the rituals followed by Hindus. He covers a vast variety of subjects from the human soul and the concepts of life and death to the power of myth. This book tackles certain questions like why Hindus have 330 million gods but believe in one supreme god? Does Hinduism talk about a place beyond hell? Was it right to send the Kauravas to heaven and the Pandavas to hell? Here is an easy to read book filled with interesting insights and stories that many Hindus might have heard as children as well as beautifully drawn illustrations by the author himself.
