Abstract: History and myths hold a great charm for the novelists and readers in our times. That is why the re-telling of myths has become a lucrative writing business. While re-telling a myth or epical story, the writers have been seen to adopt different strategies. It could be a faithful re-telling in modern English language with writer’s own contribution standing out clearly as is the case with Dev Dutt Pattanaik’s writings. It can also be a re-representation with varying degrees of moulding of the original storyline. From Ashok Banker to Amish Tripathi to Ashwin Sanghi, this allegiance to the original story has been weakening, so that in the last named, the link with the original storyline becomes rather tenuous.
