KOLKATA, India (PRWEB) January 13, 2013
Mrityunjay has long held an interest in mythology, especially those which relate to the present-day world and modern struggles. In his new book, “Meghdoot: The Emissary of Sunderance” (published by Trafford Publishing), Mrityunjay turns his eye to the Classics, while keeping his finger on the pulse of the contemporary.
“‘Meghdoot’ is a mythical poetic drama epitomizing the subliminal relationship between a man trapped between trying circumstances of sunderance with his beloved and Nature,” states Mrityunjay.
Inspired by classical Sanskrit literature, “Meghdoot” amalgamates nature with human life and, says Mrityunjay, “makes it share its varied imagination, feelings and sufferings like an inseparable friend.”
Mrityunjay’s unique perception and contemporary treatment of images of history and heritage presents a lyrical recipe of a mythical drama. Footnotes on mythical characters, symbols and scriptural references make it all the more reader friendly.
