Description

To rid the world of the evil, ten-headed Ravana, the Hindu god Vishnu appears on earth as a heroic prince, Rama. The devotion of his brother Lakshman, his marriage to the beautiful Sita, and encounters with demons, giants, sages, and holy men form favorite episodes familiar to any Hindu child.

Taken from the holy text, the Ramayana, these stories conclude with Rama's efforts to rescue the kidnapped Sita, aided by Hanuman, leader of an army of monkeys.

These incidents have been retold and lavishly illustrated using original paintings from a 16th-century Mughal manuscript.

Praise

"This is an exquisite collector's edition - and not just for the children's bookshelf."
The Mint

"Since we're all familiar with the Ramayana, we might find that here, the bad guys especially, look very different from pictures we've grown up with."
