The legend of Mahishasura Mardini

Updated : 2018-10-16 08:28:26

Strange, transitional times these are. As a society, we are oscillating between tradition and resurgence. A new dawn cracks at the horizon, ushering an era of gender wakefulness and parity.

And from the annals of Indian mythology, comes a story so fitting, it emulates the present-day renaissance, almost as if on cue. The story of a dreaded and incorrigible demon who suffers defeat at the hands of a woman and finally finds reclamation in death.

On the virtuous day of Mahalaya, we bring you a heroic tale of good versus evil; of false entitlement, inflated ego and the remorseless yearning for power that climaxes at the ensuing conquest of virtue.

This is Mahishasura Mardini for you. Happy reading!
