Art Divine: Sacred Hindu History in Pop Art style illustrations

If Pixar decides to make a movie based on Indian Mythologies, probably this is how people outside India and those not familiar with sacred Hindu history & Hindu religion will visualize the Indian God & Goddess.


The impact of Animation movies, comic books is very strong among the kids & grown-ups alike. The audience for a well made animation movie or an interestingly designed comic book would be huge and hence they would have a bigger impact on the  awareness level of people and not the religious books which are actually restricted to a very specific set of people. The new-age tools of entertaining & engagement have the power to bring together people from across the world cutting across religious & geographical boundaries.
