Souvenir from the 'Devis and Demons' session

Just received this montage of images from the Times Lit Fest (Mumbai) session with Devdutt Pattanaik and Arshia Sattar about 'Devis and Demons' in Indian epics. Cleverly structured by Devdutt P, the conversation wove in threads from the Ramayana and the Mahabharat about ambitious women, falling in love, alluring deer and overconfident hunters, impotent men, forest as a place to confront one's fears and hungers and transformation, and what it is that makes monsters out of ordinary beings.
