Abstract

The study of mythology need no longer be looked on as an flee from realism into the fantasies of primordial people, but as a investigator for the deeper understanding of the human mind. In reaching out to explore the distant hills where the gods dwell and the deeps where the monsters are lurking, we are perhaps discovering the way home.

 These words of H.R. Ellis Davidson, in her Gods and Myths of Northern Europe pave way to see the myths in a different perception. It explicates the modern world of science how myth is essential and their functions in the lives of the people. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni explores and creates a new world through her novels which are based on the platform of myth. Is myth vital? What is the significance of myth in day to-day life? How does myth act as a moral instructor? How does it heal the problems of human being? How do myths help the people? These questions are interpreted and analyzed in this study with reference to the

select novels of Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.
