News that we missed to share. An article on Deccan Chronicle newspaper on Fan fiction that quoted Vishwas Mudagal. An interesting point made on mythology books.

But if someone is indeed mindful of the literary value of what they are writing, then composing fan fiction is a great way to start of on the path to getting published. Not just contemporary fiction, but epics like the Ramayana and the Mahabharata are always getting re-interpreted by people who, you could say, are writing fan fiction!”
