    The collected essays contain a variety of pieces on Indian culture, languages and folklore. It contains one of Ramanujan's most famous essays, Three Hundred Ramayanas, that got banned in Mumbai University by the actions of a certain Hindu nationalist. It also contains the best commentary on Mahabharata that I have read till date. This one essay surpasses "The Difficulty of Being Good" in depth and insight. The book is full of folktales and titbits from mythology. Some essays though, which focus The collected essays contain a variety of pieces on Indian culture, languages and folklore.

The book is full of folktales and titbits from mythology. Some essays though, which focus on the Tamil language and literature, might be too specific to interest a general readership. In addition, as Ramanujan wrote these as part of different compilations, there is much repetition. In all, this book is not for cover-to-cover reading. I recommend the following essays to anyone interested:- 1) Is There an Indian Way of Thinking? An informal essay 2) Three Hundred Ramayanas 3) Repetition in the Mahabharata 4) Men, Women, and Saints 5) Who needs Folklore?
