Title: Imagining another world : the storyteller in Mahābhārata and midnight’s children
Authors: Chua, Donna

Abstract: This dissertation sets out to showcase how traditional storytelling is intricately unique towards the society and cannot be replaced even with the visual spectacle and engagement that technology offers. Through analysing the Mahābhārata with the film adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s novel Midnight’s Children, this dissertation will showcase that the traditional storyteller better portrays human constructs as they continually adapt stories. On the other hand, contemporary film and technology diminishes the experience even when adapting the very stories that storytellers spur.
