Abstract

The proposed article will look at a few texts by contemporary famous fiction writers. The study looks at how these writings show a range of different perspectives toward the performers and occurrences in ancient folklore. One can see the interpretations of ancient folklore through legendary stories, and writers use ancient folklore in a modern way.

We are excited to know our traditions and culture through reading and writing about them. Modern authors have retold ancient Indian culture with contemporary situations by attributing scientific explanations to traditional cultural ethics.

The paper focuses on modern writers who have written in contrast with our own ancient Indian mythical tales with new modern imagination, modern problems, and solutions.
