To analyse and explore the roots of life, the nature of truth and evil and to probe into human relations, Dr. SL Bhyrappa makes use of myths, legends, rituals and rites in his novels. This gives him ample scope to comprehend contemporary life against the backdrop of the past, and to interpret the past from the contemporary view point.
It presents Manjayya as an archetypal evil being, given to licentious sex, and Lakku as the destructive power of evil. Unhealthy and extreme lust for money is presented. If this was not possible, she had to be taken to the forest by the father and left there. Myths never die. They go on acquiring new patterns, new meanings, new forms in art and literature and create new awareness in the psyche of generations with the passage of time.
They may retain their original form, or they may improve or deteriorate and get distorted, but they remain a part of the collective consciousness. Sometimes, it may be difficult to accept the changed forms and sometimes the changed forms may be more acceptable, depending on the norms of a particular period. The myth of Sisyphus is used by the absurdists and the existentialists to concretise the meaninglessness in the daily activities of life.
Many of these writers use myths as a pattern for measuring the anarchy, confusion and degeneracy of the present. But these writers do not use the original myth as is. They use only a part of the idea or some specific part of the original myth.
Yet, he demystifies the incidents, characters and the texture of the epic and imbues in them human feelings and weaknesses, and divests them of their superhuman and divine quality. His mythopoeic sensibilities and cosmic consciousness extend their vision to the distant past, and capture it through the lens of the present.

Ganga is not a woman of heaven. All the characters in Parva surpass the standards of common humanity and shine in their human yet super-human aura. They are like us, yet different from us. It is said that myths deal with universal problems of epic proportions, and that they are the cumulative legacy of an ancient religious worldview.
What Bhyrappa offers us through the use of myths, legends and rituals in his works is a vision of the cultural heritage of the past and the positive values it had inculcated, along with their present degeneration in our country.
Thus, there is defusable relation between myth and fiction, and this use of myth finally results in the reconstructing of the same mythical patterns in more ordinary words and relevant to the contemporary situation. We have creation myths, fall and flood myths, metamorphosis and dying-god-myths, fertility myth etc. Myths are not historical, but they provide a kind of continuity of tradition. Thus they obliterate the boundaries separating legend, historical reminiscences and actual history When a system of myth loses its connection with belief it becomes a purely literary myth.
Thus myth provides the main outline and the circumference of a verbal universe, which is later occupied by literature. In all cultures mythology merges insensibly into and with literature. It is relatively easy to see the place of a myth in a mythology, and one of the main uses of myth criticism is to enable us to understand the corresponding place that a work of literature has in the context of literature as a whole….
