Interview by Amita Nathwani on Devayan Asian Television Network (ATN) Toronto, Canada. 20th May 2016
Asian Television Network (ATN) in Toronto, Canada gave me the honour to speak a few words on the epic Devayan on their channel “Jhankar”. Ms. Kanta Arora, the charismatic anchor of ATN interviewed me and Dr. Shirish Nathwani of Canada on Devayan. We were very happy and delighted to have this opportunity and I wish herewith to express my deepest appreciation for the same. I must admit right away that it is very difficult to express and describe in a short interview an epic that straddles across the Four Ages of Time.

She was totally immersed in the contents of the epic.She kept up a high pitch of imaginative excitement whenever she talked about it. She had a great impact on me. I realised that she was getting older all the time. In August 2000, when I interviewed her she was already 78 years old. I asked her a few questions to unfold the mystery of this epic. Here is my interview with her..
