The world of Hindu fictionThese are some noted authors writing fiction based on Hindu mythology.
Mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik has written about almost every Hindu story you can think of. His books are known for being very thoroughly researched and he reiterates Hindu myths (and advices from them) in a way that is easy to understand and apply in the modern world.
Amish Tripathi is primarily known for Shiva trilogy, Immortals of Meluha. He has since also published a Ram Chandra series which is just as popular. His stories incorporate Hindu mythologies while creating a new fictional world of its own and portray gods as mortal beings who lived a long time ago.
Debuting with the bestseller Karna’s Wife, Kavita Kané is one of the new era fiction authors who primarily retell epics and old stories from a new perspective. She has a big female readership as she writes on overlooked women from some of the most well-known Hindu mythologies.
