The Rama Saga

Ramnath Tripathi (Author) Prabhat Kumar Pandeya (Translator)
Synopsis Shri Rama permeates the Indian psyche and ethos. Not only has his life inspired a large number of literary works in many Indian and Asian languages but also even the illiterate Indian knows couplets from the Ramacharitmanas. However, the primary source of the Rama saga is Valmeeki’s Ramayana in Sanskrit, which is the basis of this well researched fictional portrayal of this Great Soul. Rama is the epitome of traditional values and propriety, hence, the epithet maryada purushottama, an excellent man of propriety. The novel covers all important events of his life and presents them in a lively readable manner. What is special is the human treatment of the god. A rewarding work of fiction, delightful and instructive. The appendices clarify some of the controversial issues in the Rama saga. The book will enable and at places move the reader to tears. This book is the English translation of much-acclaimed Hindi novel Ramagatha which has been translated into other Indian languages also.
