Before I begin my review my Pranam to Devadutt Pattanaik for once again being the medium to the answers I seek in my life If not directly at least providing some insight into the topic as my mind is shrouded in the fog of uestions ignorance and even some cynicism Please accept my gratitude for reaffirming my beliefs in humility humanity true sense of dharma karma and everything I envision my life to be based on Thank you So muchBefore having picked up the book before even knowing about the book I had my reservations about Ram and what he stood for in my mind You would know what instances I'm speaking of which led to such a judgement of him If not the constant Agni pariksha that Sita had to go through her support of him even with all the unfair accusations hurled at her should make it clear The staunch feminist in me refuses to accept such instances But upon knowing that justice is served throughout epic I'm relieved After all how would a story be filled with learning points of the protagonist not have a weaker side to balance his stronger side Balance is nature after all The Book of Ram acts as not only Ram's advocate but an omniscient presence in the story in the form of Pattanaik's views justifies and analyses every moment in Ramayana and even beyond the epic pulling in instances from other mythological works to compare and give a better insight into the epic And to you readers who are contemplating whether to buy this book or not if you are exhausted and burnt under the scorching sun of the harsh desert that Kaliyug is Devadutt Pattanaik readily brings you the oasis The Book of Ram And if this book doesn't give you even a modicum of peace I don't know what will

Free read The Book of Rama

The Book of RamaStandard Sanskrit Aryan version to the Dravidian version all the way up to the Burmese and the Thailand versions. It has always been a little difficult for me to comprehend a character like Ram There is always the point to be considered that he is too good to be true in terms of how he acts in the face of tremendous odds There are only two instances in the entire Ramayana when Ram breaks out of his otherworldly calm and makes what appears to be errors in judgement when seen from a common man’s POV The first is when he shoots an arrow to the back of Vali and kills him and the second is his expulsion of his fully pregnant wife into the jungles There are explanations galore on the nature of dharma in these two instances but the banishment of Sita has been rankled me ever since I came to know of the Uttara Kanda in the Ramayana Keeping in line with the expectations of audiences a lot many interpretations of the Ramayana on screen do not take up this part of the epic It’s almost always ‘they lived happily ever after’ and not the bitter scenes that follows it And it is also the Uttara Kanda that made me totally admire Sita and of all the trails she had to endure before the earth took her back into her bosom Devdutt Pattanaik explores these intricacies of Ram and the characters who surround him in this bookEach chapter in the book tells of one of Ram’s roles a son a prince a student a husband a brother master to Hanuman enemy to Ravana King of Ayodhya an incarnation of Vishnu and finally a little piece on him being the icon of Hindutva Pattanaik puts together a compelling enough picture of this character through this mode of analysis The adherence to dharma can sometimes make Rama appear superhuman and sometimes make him look like he is too stubborn for his own good The times he is said to have lived which according to the Hindu mythology was known as the Treta Yuga were also not the least bit flexible when it came to adherence to rules and laws and the position of each individual in their own social strata Rama emerges from all these as a shining beacon into a world that was slowly losing belief in morals and sound judgement Citing tales from folk tale versions to vocal renditions Pattanaik brings to light a lot many faces of Rama that aren’t common knowledge It is also necessary to understand that the Hindu mythology is one that thrives on balance even when it comes to gods Hence it is that Vali who Rama kills in his time is reborn as Jara the hunter who shoots the arrow that ends the life of Krishna in the next yuga The one piece of this book that is most timely is the one which talks about casting Rama as in the icon of militant Hindutva and how a King who had once made it his ideology to treat his every subject as eual is now touted as an image of pure strength A detailed look at a famed character While it is not necessary that you need the Ramayana before approaching this book having read the epic would help you connect the dots faster
