The spectrum of Indian literature consists of ancient treatises such as the Vedas and Upanishads, epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, and various regional works of literature. In our ancient treatises, teachings on even the most intricate aspects of living can be found, thereby making them quite didactic in nature. On the other hand, as we visit regional literature of Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, Punjab, West Bengal, we see strong depictions of prevalent norms and cultures in the stories. Where one type of literature preached how societies should be, the other showed how things really were.
With our efforts at Pratha, we hope to make our readers explore the legacy of Indian literature and its many shades in a fun and engaging manner.
