Epics Aren’t Histories. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Has Lord Rama lived
As the Ramayana has depicted?
Has Lord Krishna lived
As the Mahabharata has enacted?
Epics are pictured
With a view to entertainment of mass.
Epics are written
With a view to literary merit.
They aren’t histories.
What they say are what their writers have said.
