Project Idea: Sages and Gurus

Both epics features sages and gurus as main characters, so that you could choose to do a project just focusing on a single character, or you could weave together the stories of different rishis in your project.

Research Tip: Start with the Wikipedia articles about the rishis (sages) of India, plus related terms like guru and yogi. Then you can start zooming in on the sages and gurus who are of most interest to you; there is a list of rishis, with links to detailed articles about Valmiki, Vishvamitra, VashishtaParashurama, KapilaRishyasringa, Drona, Durvasa, Agastya, and Vyasa, to name just a few, plus the yoginis like Anasuya, Shabari, Arundhati, and more.

You will also find comic books on Reserve in Bizzell about the epic gurus like Vishvamitra and Drona, and you can also find comic books about other Indian seers and holy men like Kabir, Mirabai, Ramakrishna, and Vivekenanda.
