Bhakti grew up listening to stories of Ramayana and Mahabharat, India’s two biggest mythological stories. She wanted to pass this on to her own kids and other kids. This inspired her to quit her flourishing banking career and take up full time writing children’s books on Indian mythology and places of worship.
