one of the world’s great literary
masterpieces, skillfully retold for modern audiences. Epics like the
Ramayana have been recounted infinite times. Is there a need for another
chronicle in the presence of so many? How is this one different? And is
it relevant to our ever-changing modern lives?
Yes, there is a need, yes this is different and yes, it is relevant.
This new series of books, each following one khand of the Ramayana,
decodes the eternal wisdom of that poetic scripture through gripping
narrative and thought-provoking instruction. In the time-honored custom
of spreading wisdom through tales, every fascinating story in the epic is
retold here and every character unfolded to captivate your heart and open
your mind to lifes deepest questions.
The narrative closely follows Valmikis Ramayana, gently weaving in
folk tales as well as the beautiful analogies of the Kamba Ramayana.
The first of this six-volume series, Rise of the Sun Prince, takes you
through the divine story of Lord Rama from His birth up to His marriage.
Through these pages are revealed the tales of Dasarathas leadership, Vishwamitras
quest for power and the intriguing story of a little-known stone maiden. Ramayana:
The Game of Life has all of this and much more –
food for contemporary thought drawn from an enduring masterpiece.

Rating :- 4.5/5
Beautifully written book. I have seen Ramayana 100 times but this book changed
my views about Epics. Beautiful explanations provided. Also things have been
broken down into many pieces so that people can understand it.
Lot of things which people never knew about Ramayana have been highlighted
(like 353 wives etc)
Quotes will teach us lot of things like :-
“A good game is full of twists and turns at every stage and promises to thrill
with its absolute unpredictability of results.”
Footnotes played very important role in whole book. Also , small explanations like How Ayyodhya looked , what were ones’ feeling at different point of time etc were beautifully portrayed.
Waiting for the second one. Waiting to learn more from life. It is a must buy.
