About the author:
The author grew up in a family with rich spiritual values surrounded with myths and legends. Subsequent to his MD in Psychiatry from the Armed Forces Medical College, Pune and his service in the Indian Air Force, his childhood fascination in myths and legends needed a sound footing than merely believing in them as part of his religious tradition. He found this deeper understanding in his spiritual journey through the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo. Though he has written and spoken extensively on various subjects the myths and legends of India, especially the worship of the Divine Mother, Shakti, remains closest to his heart.
