In a world wrecked by war, the turtle chose peace. They are the gentle giants and warriors of Mother Earth.
Fathers play a huge role in our lives. To me, the concept of family goes beyond the people who we are related to by blood. In The Lion King, Mufasa and Scar are perfectly juxtaposed against each other. Scar is a power hungry tyrant willing to kill his own kin to advance his political agenda whereas Mufasa is a brave and exemplary leader who will stake his own life to protect the ones he loves.
“If you trace fairy tales throughout history, you can see how they directly reflect the society in which they were created. For instance, the Brothers Grimm would write multiple versions of the same tales, shifting them for various audiences. Writing these as lessons to children yielded one version for instance, and creating versions for a monarch yielded another.”
With her very colourful and engaging characters, Sanatani manages to create strong imagery in our heads which readers can relate to their own lives on earth. What is amazing about the narrative style is the human-like conversations between different Celestial Beings that makes it easy for the readers to quickly grasp the storyline.
