(Rebroadcast) S02 E20: Devdutt Pattanaik

We are rebroadcasting Episode.20 from the second season of Keeping It Queer to understand our myths better. On this episode of Keeping it Queer, author Devdutt Pattanaik joins Navin to have an in-depth discussion about:

  • How he was first introduced to Indian mythology.
  • How people don't read enough history before interpreting religion.
  • How India's greatest monk wrote the best book on erotica.
  • How he was exposed to all kinds of cultures as a child in the Pre-Hindutva era.

In the Culture Vulture segment, Farhad and Navin take an in-depth at the new film 'Love, Simon' and the issues surrounding it.
