As part of reading different versions of Ramayana, I have read this book This is the best one I have come across till date The author presents the story devoid of his opinion or biases which is something I liked.I also liked the way he draws parallels between Valmiki Ramayana and Kamban Ramayana.Such a relief to read this after reading Devdutt Patnaik s version Sita one of the worst books I have read This is considered as one of the TRIO Epics of Indian cultureThe greatest book ever This indian historical epic is considered as a LEGEND in the punya bhoomi The book depits the life story of a greatest Prince Rama who is an embodiment of all good qualities a human can ever possess Sita, wife of Rama, is a perfect example of how a woman should be Each and every character in this book will teach us something and helps to live an untainted life Personally, I feel i have no words to describ This is considered as one of the TRIO Epics of Indian cultureThe greatest book ever This indian historical epic is considered as a LEGEND in the punya bhoomi The book depits the life story of a greatest Prince Rama who is an embodiment of all good qualities a human can ever possess Sita, wife of Rama, is a perfect example of how a woman should be Each and every character in this book will teach us something and helps to live an untainted life Personally, I feel i have no words to describe these Trio epics I love readings Epics and old, old mythologies and really making the connections between them all over the world Icarus burning his wings in Greek mythology to Sampati, the vulture, who burned his wings on account of protecting his brother when they both flew too close to the sun in Ramayana There are some obvious parallels like this one, or another one between Hindu religion and the Abrahamic faiths that I discovered when talking to a friend Krishna is carried across a river in a basket when I love readings Epics and old, old mythologies and really making the connections between them all over the world Icarus burning his wings in Greek mythology to Sampati, the vulture, who burned his wings on account of protecting his brother when they both flew too close to the sun in Ramayana There are some obvious parallels like this one, or another one between Hindu religion and the Abrahamic faiths that I discovered when talking to a friend Krishna is carried across a river in a basket when a king starts killing male babies because he hears of a prophecy that one of them will rise to kill him which is so similar to the story of Moses I ve heard The Hindu Gods also resemble the Greek Gods Indra Zeus, Vayu Eurus But what I really love about Epics is that you can sort of trace back all fantasy fiction to it You can also see the trend of black and white truths and, of course, the rampant sexism The part that s always bothered me the most This one goes on to feminizing the land and calling the King the husband of the land and with his death comes the widowhood of the land Random musings All the old myths and epics I ve read always describe the Men as beautiful, having slender faces and almond shaped eyes and smooth complexion All attributes that are now seen as feminine Ew at the concept of a woman existing to serve her husband and the idea of a man having several wives and consorts Also had the plotline of a man going near insane with grief on losing his lover I haven t read book 7 of this Epic I read it in my Norton Anthology of world literature so parts of the previous books book 7 are missing This classic translation of the Ramayana is a complete and unabridged verse by verse translation of the great epic poem This is not the Ramayana in the story format but the translation of the verses in the poetic form The author reproduces the spirit of the ancient hymns with great flair The lavishly added notes to the verses and appendix at the end of the book adds to the reference value of the title. Thanks to Lada who give me the courage to read this monument, this masterpiece.
