I'm currently a senior at OU. I'm finishing up my undergrad degree in social work. I'm originally from Las Vegas, but have learned to love life in Oklahoma. I enjoy swimming, walking and reading in my spare time. I also enjoy a lot of t.v. too, tbh. Some shows that I'm really into right now are The Walking Dead, OITNB, Last Man on Earth and South Park. I enjoy doing lots of crafting in my free time too, especially needlework. I have two cats that I obsess unhealthily about and make sure they want for nothing. You can follow the progress of my Blog and work for Prof. Gibbs MLLL 4993 (Indian Epics) class on the link below. See you around!

The Ramayana in Disney's, "A Little Princess."

1 min read

This is perhaps my earliest exposure to the Ramayana and Hindu mythology. I remember watching the movie many times with my older sister. Many of my parents friends thought my sister looked like the main character from the movie at her age. I thought it would be interesting to see what others think of this live-action interpretation of the story, despite the fact it's only getting served to the audience in bits and pieces throughout the main story.

Sanjay Patel

1 min read

Hey guys! This is my first Known post and I decided to post about Sanjay Patel. He's a Pixar animator who published a series of books about Hinduism, including an interpretation of the Ramayana, and added his own unique and colorful illustrations to it. His books got me interested in Hindu mythology and the Ramayana years ago and I hope you will enjoy some of his pictures as much as I have.
