Often we try to find science in mythology to satisfy our internal battles and keep juggling between the two. But mythology itself has something peculiar which at times draws ardent disbelievers through its gripping stories strikingly weaved some hundreds and thousands of years ago in the contexts as fresh as dew even today.

Simple writing is the toughest and I admire Sudha Murthy as an author who has been able to carry this craft with sheer grace. The Upside Down King is a book of stories related to the two most renowned and revered mythological characters – Rama and Krishna, both considered to be the reincarnated avatars of Lord Vishnu. Born these characters were not just born in two different eras but were also quite different than each other as well. Sudha Murthy exquisitely writes down these stories highlighting their dissimilarities, their associations with their families, friends, society, kingdoms, and world at large. The book will surely carry you to the times when Gods and Demons visited humans on the earth quite often, when animals talked and curses and boons had an immediate effect.

The book will also make known to you to a wide range of mythological characters, sages, time travel and the lineages of Rama and Krishna in the form of fascinating stories. My favourite ones being – The Power of a Name, where Narada tricks Sage Vishwamitra and Anjana leading to a futile battle between Rama and Hanuman; Krishna’s Consorts which tells us of Krishna’s wives Rukmani, Jambuvati, Satyabhama and many more and their relations with each other; Three and a half diamonds again describing a mischief played by Narada Muni leaving Duryodhana, Bhima and Balarama transfixed and Rukmani and Satyabhama tired of Narada’s usual stories entertained. The stories related to The End of Rama and The End of Krishna are touching but comes with a strong message which I leave for you to discover after reading the book.

Athena

Athena was the goddess of wisdom. After the victory of the Olympian gods in the Battle of the Titans, Zeus formed a relationship with Metis, daughter of Oceanus and Tithys. Her parents told Zeus that the fruit of the relationship would first be Athena, whose bravery and wisdom would rival those of her father, and later a son, who would be more clever than Zeus and might, one day, be a menace to his throne.

Fuxi and Nuwa. Hanging scroll on silk, 8th century Tang Dynasty. •

Brother (Fuxi)  and sister (Nuwa) who according to Chinese myth, were the only two survivors of a great flood. Being brother and sister there was shame in procreating and getting married so Nuwa created a number of clay figures which she was able to bring to life with divine spiritual assistance and create mankind.

To be reborn, a rebirth of your spirit, sometimes you have to kill your old self, and become the magic and light you were meant to be in this life. You are a child of the universe, the light and magic you carry is eternally eternal..find your light, stay focused and always stand by your truth, darkness will come, how you handle it...determines your next step in the path of your eternity..help illuminate this world that desperately seeks a hero with your light, be the hero this world needs...
Don't expect change if you don't make changes, your every day routine, the people you associate with, boyfriends, girlfriends, if you keep going in circles, maybe you love the chaos, the drama, the misery? You decide your life, your decide your happiness, no one else, you by your choices tell people what you tolerate, no one else, stop blaming life, or lovers for your choices, change it..only you control it, or do you love crying yourself to sleep every night? Some do, for attention, think about what you are doing to live the life you are living....

The Parthenon in Nashville, Tennessee displays a 42-foot golden Athena statue. The building & Athena are full-scale replicas of the Grecian originals. In mythology, giants from earth, or "Gaia," fought with Gods from the Cosmos. In order to defeat the giants, the Gods had to enlist the help of one of the giants, thus Hercules entered the picture & the giants were defeated. I read mythology as though there is some truth intertwined, however minute. It is well documented historically that conquerors & rulers attempted to completely erase or redefine cultural beliefs & genealogical histories of their predecessors as well as alter their own genealogies. True historians wishing to preserve history -- while avoiding punishment -- might do so by subtly intertwining truth with fiction in a story or spiritual belief that is culturally accepted. In this way, historical truths are preserved in some fashion & the public secretly exposed to them. Genealogically, those searching for truth will read various accounts & compare them. This often reveals what is truth and what is fiction. Just some thoughts as I've learned patterns of human behavior through doing genealogy. You might be surprised as to how much your personality traits & skills parallel that of more than one ancestor who lived 200 years ago. The culture changes far more quickly than learned family traits change. I've seen the practice of mythology at work in many unsourced genealogies. Myths enter in with persons wanting to be related to famous or powerful people. Truth is often removed by disregarding individuals and histories that don't connect them to power or by removing individual histories considered shameful to the family. I cringe at these insertions and removals. It is all very relevant. We learn from & identify with outlaw traits in our family and we learn from those who honor the family. Both are relevant in teaching us how to improve the quality of our relationships with others & how to avoid the repeated pitfalls.

What makes you different from other is your determination to go to any lengths to achieve your goals. People might give up when they feel tired. The different and special person will only stop when they are done. They believe in themselves and they take actions. Tearing apart any limitation is nothing hard for this type of people who share the same value with the Viking berserkers.

La Gorgone; Medusa

I was loved by all the Gods. Well... Aphrodite, Athena, even Hera were not as equally as beautiful like me.
I dated God of Sea at lunch and had countless dinners with Zeus, The Chief God of Olympians. Then you named some lustrous activities that would come next.

But, the envy Athena cursed me for I had an affair with Poseidon. I was bewitched that every living creatures turned into stones when they glazed into my deep blue mediteranian eyes.
I might consider myself kind if you didn't visit my lair. These pair of beautiful eyes even scared Hades to make a rendezvous with me.
