Mythology needs to be differentiated from other types of stories: legends (which are political) and fables (which have moral agenda). Mythology establishes worldviews & hegemony. Rational secularism is based on myth of Justice & Equality of Islam/Christianity, for example.

A man beats up women. Condemning him is not 'andro-phobia' A Muslim man kills in religious frenzy Condemning him is not 'Islamo-phobia' An Israeli soldier kills a Palestinian child Condemning him is not 'Anti-Semitism' But wordsmiths will not agree....

Bollywood must not insult Hindu gods. Agreed. Can Bollywood discuss untouchability? Can Bollywood discuss old actors obsessed with young heroines? Can Bollywood discuss Hindi people thinking they are superior to non-Hindi people? 😱

आज कई बेरोजगार ट्रोल, जिन्होंने कभी किताबें नहीं पढ़ीं, जो बुद्धिजीवियों से घृणा करते हैं, वे सलमान रुश्दी पर हमले की गहन चर्चा करेंगे और अपनी हिंसा को सही ठहराने के लिए उनपर हुई प्रहार की निंदा करेंगे 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Today many unemployed trolls, those who never ever read books, those who despise intellectuals, will intensely discuss attack on Salman Rushdie and condemn one violence to justify their own violence 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Why do so many cultures, from Punjab to Kerala, Thailand to Tamil Nadu, celebrate the same festival of spring under different names? What if we re-examine the Ramayana not as the tale of a hero, but as a love story? Find your answers in @devduttmyth 's #TheStoriesWeTell

Some people collect food not to eat the food but to ensure others starve. Same with power.
