Book Description

Ram Rajya. The Perfect Land. But perfection has a price. He paid that price.
3400 BCE. INDIA
Ayodhya is weakened by divisions. A terrible war has taken its toll. The damage runs deep. The demon King of Lanka, Raavan, does not impose his rule on the defeated. He, instead, imposes his trade. Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know. A tortured and ostracised prince. A prince they tried to break. A prince called Ram.
He loves his country, even when his countrymen torment him. He stands alone for the law. His band of brothers, his Sita, and he, against the darkness of chaos.
Will Ram rise above the taint that others heap on him? Will his love for Sita sustain him through his struggle? Will he defeat the demon Lord Raavan who destroyed his childhood? Will he fulfil the destiny of the Vishnu?

Book Review


As incredible as it is, the story of Ram told and retold by countless story tellers over the centuries has only added to the richness of the tale. I enjoyed reading Amish Tripathi's take on the greatest story ever written/sung/enacted or narrated. He has done a great job with the Shiva Triology and you find traces of that world to come in this book as conversations between Ram and Sita.

I liked the little changes he made to the characters like making Manthara a rich merchant rather than Kaikeyi's maid servant. Also the rakhi angle and violence against the physician was a different and effective trigger. I'm not sure people who are fond of the regular tale will understand the addition of this twist. However as far as I was concerned it added a definite difference and allowed the author to make the tale his.
