    Kavita Kane - Art of writing mythological fiction

    Kavita Kane - Art of writing mythological fiction

    On the 37th episode of Indian Artpreneur Podcast we speak to Kavtia Kane, who is an author, motivational speaker and a former journalist. Mrs. Kane is also the author of seven books.
    Karna's Wife her debut novel, (2013) was a bestseller. Her second novel – Sita's Sister (2014) also deals with another enigmatic personality – Urmila, probably the most overlooked character in the Ramayan. Menaka's Choice(2015) ,another best-seller, is about the famous apsara and her infamous liaison with Vishwamitra the man she was sent to destroy. Lanka's Princess (2016) is her fourth book based on Ravan's sister, Surpanakha, the Princess of Lanka who was also its destroyer.
    Her fifth book Sita's Sister(2017) on why did Sita's siter agree to be left behind in the palace, waiting for her husband for 14 painfully long years? and the sixth book, The Fisher Queen's Dynasty (2017) which will re-align your reading of the Mahabharata. Ahalya's Awakening (2019) draws out the voice of a character that lacked one—even before she was turned to stone.
    Her latest and seventh book, Saravasti's Gift (2021)- Mrs. Kane brings to light Sarasvati's story-the goddess of art, music and knowledge-told in the voices of nameless celestials, powerful gods and lesser mortals. The book explores her relationship with her Creator, Brahma, and their unusual marriage-a union of fiercely independent minds and the most non-conforming, unconventional of the Triumvirate couples. As these peripheral figures and silent catalysts take centre stage, we get a glimpse of an extraordinary woman and her remarkable story, obscured and buried under myths and legends.
    In this episode we speak to hear about her writing process:
    Story Structure
    Key components of mythological fiction
    Research
    Dance and music in mythology
    Advise for young writers
