Mythology And Modernity: Vision For New India in Amish Tripathi’s Work
Keywords:mythology, tradition, liberalism, modernity, culture.
A raging debate in the modern world is whether mythology and culture have any say in the creation of a modern world or not. There are extremists on both sides. The modernists claim that the past is evil altogether and its redundant and regressive nature makes it necessary to jettison it for future progress. On the other hand, the traditionalists argue that all that is good lies in the past and hence one has to look towards the past for creating anything new. Amish Tripathi with his mythological narratives has struck a golden middle path. The present research paper aims to delve into this feature of his philosophical essays.
