In 2014, Pattanaik was listed in the top category of bestselling Indian authors. His book Devlok, based on the television programme of the same name, was one of the year’s bestsellers in 2016. Forbes India had ranked Pattanaik among the 100 celebrities of India in 2016.

Fiction author Ashwin Sanghi has said that Pattanaik attempts to “explain mythology in simple words”. Psychologist Urmi Chanda-Vaz, who calls Pattanaik “India’s most beloved mythology explicator”, praised his book My Gita. Intellectual Shiv Visvanathan has praised Pattanaik by saying that he has made myth-reading “an open, playful, almost domestic game, like Chinese Checkers or Scrabble”.

Neil Gaiman praised Devdutt Pattanaik for his 2016 book Olympus: An Indian Retelling of the Greek Myth. “I read a fantastic Indian writer recently where he told Greek myth but from an Indian perspective. He makes it so easy to understand but what is lovely is that he does from a very proud Indian connect.”

About the Book: Indian Culture, Art and Heritage by Devdutt Pattanaik

Book Cover

HindiDevdutt Pattanaik has now combined his expertise in the former and experience with the latter to come up with a book that will serve as a comprehensive read on all things culture, art, and heritage, with a contemporary outlook and packaging, specifically for Civil Service aspirants.

Culture is the belief of a community that is transmitted from one generation to another. While studying culture we study people’s food, clothing and shelter preferences, their belief systems, rituals and customs. Art is the expression of culture – in tangible (literature, fine arts, sculptures, fashion, architecture, coins, pots, carvings, etc.) and intangible (performing arts, music, dance and theatre) form. Heritage is what is needed to be preserved and what we as humans want to take forward too. This book shows how amalgamation of these three components – culture, art and heritage – have created, build and resurrected Indian society from its inception. This book has been designed to address the needs of Civil Services aspirants.

Divided into 64 chapters under broad topics such as economic, social, political, scientific and spiritual culture; performing arts, visual arts and new media, it also features contemporary topics like Queer LGBTQ+, Internet, and Social Media and aims to provide a holistic understanding of the subjects, and subsequently, society at large. Documented in a tabular format, it has been designed to aid memory, understanding, and the logic behind the culture. The book has insights into mythology, with over 250 storytelling images, 100 tables, and 200 examination-based questions. It specifically addresses the needs of UPSC aspirants by providing contextual illustrations on the broader subjects and their impact on one another.
