Bibek Debroy and Pushpesh Pant introduced by Jim Mallinson

 

The Puranas are an encyclopaedic corpus of myth, legend and narrative history, crucial to any understanding of popular Hindu belief. The earliest Puranas were composed between 350 and 750 CE and the most recent between 1000 and 1500. Scholars and writers Bibek Debroy and Pushpesh Pant examine, appreciate and share from this unique and little understood literary treasure.
