Love it

Unique retelling! Love it. The music is catchy too. Can’t help dancing to it.
Why can’t I listen beyond ep62 ?

Very necessary

Arti takes a decidedly western eye towards the epic, and Indian culture in general, with attitudes informed by that of a western academic. Which can be annoying. But she’s never embarrassed or apologetic, is quite charming as an author and narrator, and does a good job of streamlining a highly complex tale—making it palatable and quite enjoyable to anyone who enjoys storytelling. This is a highly necessary endeavor and I will continue to listen!

Love listening to her modern take on this classic tale! With humor sprinkled throughout, this podcast is my daily favorite!
