‘Divinity Code: Reading Hindu Mythology’ by Devdutt Pattanaik

Best-selling author and mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik spoke to a rapt audience at Pundole’s, Mumbai about Hindu mythology and its most significant beliefs. Karma doesn’t mean what most of us think it does; the gods are not all happy; and we may have to look to nature, rather than the scriptures for the real meaning of life.

Devdutt Pattanaik writes on the relevance of mythology in modern times. Trained in medicine, he worked for 15 years in the healthcare and pharma industries before he plunged full time into his passion. He is the author of over a thousand columns and 50 books, including bestsellers like My Gita, Jaya, Sita, Business Sutra and the 7 Secret series. Devdutt is also known for his TED talks, his TV shows, especially Devlok, and his innovative views on culture and leadership, and the value in taking an Indian approach to management.
