MUMBAI: Where did the name Radha come from? When did Christianity first come to India? What is the connection between sanskar and dharma? After the enormous success of the first two books in the ‘Devlok with Devdutt Pattanaik’ series, India’s favourite mythologist, Devdutt Pattanaik, is back with a third instalment to provide a perspective on stories that have stayed alive longer than history.

Based on the hugely successful TV series of the same name, the latest book, Devlok by Devdutt Pattanaik 3, is a repository of a variety of topics discussed on the popular TV show on EPIC Channel and gives readers quick and relatable insight on several key points of Indian mythology.

This volume includes interesting exploration of the various versions of the Ramayana found across Asia. There are chapters on Buddhism and Jainism and their fascinating histories. Discover where the concept of marriage comes from, the reasons behind the many riti–riwaaj in Hinduism and the place of fathers and fatherhood in Indian mythology, among myriad other topics and lesser-known tales—all tackled by Devdutt in a Q&A format.

Speaking about the book, Devdutt Pattanaik, said, “Understanding mythologies beyond one’s own, from Jain, Buddhist, Greek and Biblical lore, that is part of Devlok 3, helps us expand our mind and become more open minded, wiser and compassionate.”

Also elaborating on the launch of the book, Akul Tripathi, Content and Programming Head, EPIC TV, said, “At EPIC we strive to create content that creates value for viewers and makes not for just an entertaining watch, but makes for engaging viewing as well. We are proud that while the usual way is to make TV shows out of books, our content is held in such regard that books are made out of TV shows. A powerhouse of fables in mythology, by one of the leading thinkers on the subject, Devlok with Devdutt Pattanaik, is a brand that we are confident will have many more seasons and books.”

Covering over fifteen informative and inspiring episodes, this volume is a heady mix of education and entertainment. Priced at Rs.250/- the book is available at all leading online and offline retail stores.
