Based on the Mahabharat and the oral tradition of ancient India, Amruta Patil's Parva Duology combines breath-taking art with classic storytelling. In Adi Parva: Churning of the Ocean, the celestial river Ganga narrates the events from the beginning of time such as the churning of the sea, the snake sacrifice of Janmejaya and the first time the queen Gandhari wears a blindfold. In the sequel, Sauptik: Blood and Flowers, Ashwatthama carries the story forward after surviving the Kurukshetra battle. These epic graphic narratives featuring sages, kings, queens, warriors, and told through lush visuals, emphasize our forgotten connection with the soil, with rivers, with forests, with fire. These are stories that will inspire and guide generations.
