About the Legends of India Podcast

Long time listeners of the show may remember that when we had launched this show, it was called Myths, Legends and Fairytales of India. We always wanted to include all three types of stories: tales from mythology, legends of historical figures and characters, and of course, everyone’s favourites, fairytales. Along the way, we realised that we were doing a great disservice.
That is, dis-service to you, the listeners : first of all, the long name did not help. Many thought that it was a tongue twister! We were also doing a dis-service to the vast treasure of stories from India by trying to pack too many things in a single show. Therefore, this podcast is now simply called Fairytales of India.
Recently we launched Devgatha : Mythology for the Modern world. This show is essentially the “Myths” of the Myths, Legends and Fairytales of India.
