Shakti – Tales of the Mother Goddess by Amar Chitra Katha is a special edition published in 2018. The comic contains delightful artwork with stories of different goddesses worshipped across India. The 7 main stories are of Goddess Annapoorna, Kanyakumari, Meenakshi, Brahmri, Mahi, Shashti, and Mookambika. These stories are taken from the Puranas, folklore, and the Devi Bhagavata Purana. That is not it! There are more pages in the comic book where you can read short introduction of various other popular incarnations of shakti such as Durga, Kali, Chamunda, Brahmani, Vaishnavi, Maheshwari, Kaumari, Varahi, Indrani, Saraswati, Rati, Lakshmi, Shitala, Ganga, Shashti, Yamuna, Ushas, Ratri, Vac, Karni, Kotravai, Mariamman, Alakshmi, Aranyani, Manasa, Sarama. There is a dedicated page for the introduction of Navdurga: Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayini, Kaalratri, Mahagauri and Siddhidatri. This is an empowering read not only for modern women but for everyone. It is a must read for those who rover doubts over the role of women in Indian culture. This comic book adds knowledge like why and how goddesses are named.

Adi Shakti is considered to be the original creator of the universe. She is the power that protects and destroys. These stories not only connect us to our history or religion but give us with strength, grace and courage to face anything. These goddesses show us the power of being a woman. These stories were always present in our folkore to teach us to understand and respect the role of women. There are more manifestations of goddesses in Indian mythologies than God. This statement is enough for narrow minded people who see women with disgust but enchants name of different incarnations of goddesses.

The Story, Its Grip, Concept, and Impact – 9

The stories are written and illustrated by different artists. I read some of these stories for the first time. Though the read enhanced my knowledge, some of the stories are included for the sake of introduction. The weakest story is of Mata Meenakshi as the start of the story was good, but the ending was not properly executed. The cumulative score for all 7 stories is 8. The concept of the book is good as the comic book is enriched with so many manifestations of Indian Goddesses. The concept gets 10 to pour so much knowledge in an artistic way into the book. We enchant name of so many goddesses, yet we do not know what the meaning of their name and the story behind it is. Shakti Tales of the Mother Goddess is recommended for those who have thrust to gain knowledge about Maa Adi Shakti. The impact is amazing. The story loses its grip in couple of stories, so we give it 8. The average score for story is 9.

Shakti Tales of the Mother Goddess: Dialogues – 8


The dialogues are easy and to the point. There is nothing wrong but neither something that add excitement to the story. I loved stories just for the sake of knowing Hindu goddesses. The only one story that entertains you through dialogues is Brahmri; written by Sanjana Kapur. For Brahmri, we give it 8.


Shakti Tales of the Mother Goddess Cover Art – 8


The cover art is good. It is illustrated by Sanjhiya Mayekar.


Shakti Tales of the Mother Goddess Inside Art – 8.5


The inside art of Shakti Tales of the Mother Goddess is the one that you should get most excited for. The inside artwork by Rajib Das is something that made us spellbound. The other artist is Durgesh Velhal who has done a job like we know Amar Chitra Katha for. But Rajib Das has raised the standard by miles in three stories. For the artwork by Rajib Das, we give it 8.5
