PANTHIBHOJANAM: A STORY OF ADAPTATION Anjana Treesa Joseph MPhil Scholar Department of English University of Calicut “Art is derived from other art; stories are born of other stories” Adaptation, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, has a plurality of meanings and applications, but mostly alludes to the process of changing to suit an alternative purpose, function, or environment; i.e., the alteration of one thing to suit another.
