Within infinite myths lies an eternal truth

Who sees it all?

Varuna has but a thousand eyes

Indra a hundred

You and I, only two.

Fact is everybody's truth. Fiction is nobody's truth. Myth is somebody's truth. Myth is the truth of people-a cultural belief. It is how people imagine the world. People's belief changes with history and geography. And so, old cultures are different from new. And Indian culture is different from Chinese or European or African culture.

Every community has unique beliefs expressed using different languages, stories, songs, dances, rituals (intangible culture), as well as housing, clothing, literature, food (tangible culture), and in paintings, sculpture and architecture (arts). What we inherit is tradition. What we wish to preserve is heritage.
