Book Review: The Ramayana  

Posted by Ray in

As the author Ramesh Menon puts it, this is a modern rendering of the great Indian epic. Before I read this book I knew what Ramayana was about thanks to the Sagar brothers work on Doordarshan. But I wanted to know the little known details and this book is full of it. The author has used a very simple language to re-tell Valmiki Ramayana. The book covers Uthara Kanda and it also has a number of extra stories like that of the the story of the great sage, Viswamitra. Though, written in prose form, the author has taken every effort to keep the poetic beauty of the original. Elegantly written, this book is a must in your personal library. I'm looking forward to read the authors' other works.
