The retelling genre has been making waves on Indian literary shore for a while now. Mythologies are ripe for insights because of the story-telling charm. Recently, these mythologies are reorganised in soft-eyed and warm-hearted interpretations, mostly told from a resurfaced woman's point of view. While the earlier works followed the prophetic conventionality of the story, the recent adaptations are voiced in possibilities, imagined in varying styles. Both are fine reads with elegant prose.
