I came across an article, “Researchers Find Hidden Secrets in Rare Old Arthurian Legend.” Apparently, we’ve got some more twists to the fan fiction that is Arthurian legend. If you don’t know why I’m calling it fan fiction . . . .
A good screenwriter would pounce on this new material. Why not? Some of it has never been seen before, so it’d seem like a fresh take on the legend, yet it would be as legitimate as any other version you’ve heard or read.
I’m not a good creative writer, so I’m out.

The only thing I remember him saying from 42 years ago was that Indra’s elephant, Airavata, was known for its trunk, which it wielded as a formidable weapon.

Indra then caused cool water to rain down, thereby linking the waters of the sky to those of the underworld.” Hinduism is a large religion, which means the stories can easily change from person to person. There’s no right answer, as often legends are essentially fan fiction spanning generations. […]
