i feel that Indian Puranas are contemporary The Indian Puranas are a group of imperative Hindu, Jain or Buddhist religious texts that originated since ancient times. The texts comprises of narrative history of the Universe and is a detailed account of the creation to destruction, genealogies of the kings, heroes, sages, and demigods, and descriptions of Hindu cosmology, philosophy, and geography. Several Puranic Texts were developed during that time and recounted about the Hindu deities with religious and philosophical concepts. These texts were developed in the form of stories related by one person to another. if religion is contemporary then ofcourse puranic texts are also contemporary

The Purana treats chiefly of the creation and destruction renovation of worlds, the genealogy and deeds of gods and goddesses along with heroes and kings and lineage of Manu etc. We find that the Puranas deal systematically with the five subjects The Creation, Genealogy of gods and rsis, Manavantars or reigns of Manus as each Manu rules over an aeon , each of which is shorter than the preceding ones Pratisarga or history of humanity, destruction and construction Vansanucarit or history of Solar and Lunar dynasty. These 18 Puranas have still a valuable place in the life of religious Hindus as they serve to connect us with the past ,which we have forgotten and which needs revival is the light of new age. Puranas afford useful matter. The stories described therein are from the ancient past and can connect us to our glory if we decipher them scientifically and base them on reason and facts without any exaggeration or distortion. I personally vouch for the contemporaneity in the Indian Puranas
