Check it out, I’m gonna make you read two Indian thingies! Both of them very easy reads, and short, don’t worry, and I am giving you more than enough time.
In ONE week, on Sunday the 7th, we will discuss Shakuntala. It is a classic drama of South Asia, and there are some great translations available. Also, super short. Like, the length of a long short story. It’s a fun easy read, and it will make you constantly go “OH! this is the bit that was in Taal! OH! This is the bit that was in Bahubali!” and so on and so forth.
Here’s the link to the Gutenberg translation, which is also the one I like best:
That’s the fun easy quick read. For something a little more challenging, in THREE weeks, on Sunday the 21st, we will discuss the Siva Puranam of Ramesh Menon. It’s not super long but it is a bit long. And it’s not super complicated, but it is a bit complicated. Mostly it is just full of SEX. And it will give you a bit of a sense for the structure and ideas of Hindu Gods. Also, SEX!
Here is a link to the kindle edition:
The hard copy is a bit harder to find, try ebay or Biblio, and I am hoping I gave you enough lead time to get it!
