Vamsee K. Juluri, Ph.D., Professor, University of San Francisco
For nearly 100 years, movies and other mass media in India have retold the stories of the gods and goddesses of Hinduism. Through spectacular feature films, TV series, cartoons, comic books and novels, generations of Indians have found their favorite legends brought to life in different forms. But is the meaning of mythology the same today as it was in the days of Mahatma Gandhi? What has changed, and what has stayed the same? What does the present media climate augur for the future of Hinduism and India?
