This is the best one I have come across till date. The author presents the story devoid of his opinion or biases which is something I liked.
I also liked the way he draws parallels between Valmiki Ramayana and Kamban Ramayana. Such a relief to read this after reading Devdutt Patnaik's version 'Sita' one of the worst books I have read.
View all 8 comments. Feb 21, Gillian rated it it was amazing. The reason I'm giving this five stars is because the author provides a detailed glossary of anglicized sanskrit words, as well as a guide to pronouncing sanskrit vowels.
While he chooses not to include a translation of what he calls "the legend" of Sita's betrayal, he still provides an extremely detailed translation of Valmiki's text as it is, including some translation from the poet Kamban's version of the Ramayana who translated it into Tamil.
However, this book is very simply put forward, a The reason I'm giving this five stars is because the author provides a detailed glossary of anglicized sanskrit words, as well as a guide to pronouncing sanskrit vowels.
However, this book is very simply put forward, as he says, for children and mothers. The sentences are simple and short, while not boring to more advanced adult readers.
He presents the text like a teacher, stopping the narrative occasionally to remind us of something, or to discuss a character's moral action or a writing tool used by Valmiki or Kamban.
The author's own Gandhian belief system is apparent, so if you're looking for an unbiased translation don't look here. But if you're looking for a simple yet beautiful translation with context, this is the version you want.
Mar 18, Danial Syahreza rated it it was amazing. I read this for my Bahasa Indonesia school task and I actually enjoyed it!
Rama is an amazing character and a great role model for literally everyone in this entire world. I've never read anything about Hindu Mythology, and this book made me so interested on finding out more about Hindu Mythology.
The relationships in this book was amazing. First few chapters made me a little bit confuse, maybe because I wasn't used to the language and I read this for my Bahasa Indonesia school task and I actually enjoyed it!
First few chapters made me a little bit confuse, maybe because I wasn't used to the language and mythology. But then I've given a few more chapters and I was already so invested to it.

A beautiful story that has numerous morals embedded in it. Even till today, the story of Ramayana is recited and narrated worldwide.
Rajagopalachari's book is a concise version but he has presented the story beautifully. Rajagopalachari, throughout the book, recommends one to visit the work by Valmeeki original narrator and Kamban later translated into Tamil for the vivid descriptions.
Here's a really quick summary of A beautiful story that has numerous morals embedded in it. Here's a really quick summary of Ramayana.
In the forest Seeta was attracted by the golden deer and Rama went after it. At that time, the wicked Ravana kidnapped Seeta.
Lord Rama crossed the ocean and entered the city of Lanka. He then destroyed the city of Lanka, killed Raavana and set Seeta free. It was a magical feeling to visualize the story.
Also chanced upon a cartoon film of Ramayana on Youtube: Jan 14, Kavya Chilukuri rated it really liked it. A must read for those who want to get their facts right about the mythological Or might I say historical story.
Rajaji's thoughts and opinions and the slight variations in the versions by Kamban and Valmeeki are gently woven into the storytelling, making it a very enjoyable and informative read.
Kids would find this very enlightening and enjoyable as this prose is generally devoid of philosophical opinions which are usually found in such books and may serve as a detractor for young minds.
Ramayan A must read for those who want to get their facts right about the mythological Or might I say historical story. Ramayan is a must read!
Jan 28, Pramod Nair rated it it was amazing. One of the best and easy to read translations of Ramayana to English written in beautiful poetic prose.
May 14, Mukundhan Sampath rated it it was amazing. An authority on Ramayana! Superb language and very concise.
In my opinion, a must read. Jan 19, Satwik rated it it was amazing. I read this book due to my curiosity as the characters in the book are heard by every Indian on a daily basis.
And this book is not the original version but a concise version of original Valmiki Ramayana By Rajaji.
Why i Liked this book - - It gives the list of virtues that a Human being must posse I read this book due to my curiosity as the characters in the book are heard by every Indian on a daily basis.
Jun 17, Udit Srivastava rated it it was amazing. There was a line in the final credits background song in Ramananda Sagar's Ramayana, which I fondly watched as a child- "Puni Puni Kitne hi Kahe Sunave, Jiya ki Pyaas bujhat na Bujhae", which loosely translates to-" Even after repeated re-tellings of this beautiful story of Shree Ram, the heart does not get tired of listening to it".
This line broadly sums up my review for this book, which I wanted to write in detail. It is a long read and took me a while to complete.
As most of the Indians, I wa There was a line in the final credits background song in Ramananda Sagar's Ramayana, which I fondly watched as a child- "Puni Puni Kitne hi Kahe Sunave, Jiya ki Pyaas bujhat na Bujhae", which loosely translates to-" Even after repeated re-tellings of this beautiful story of Shree Ram, the heart does not get tired of listening to it".
As most of the Indians, I was aware of most of the events and narratives that build up this epic tale but novelty is not what I sought when I decided to take up this as my next read.
The excellent style of C. Rajagopalachari in presenting this story is the pudding on the cake. The book takes direct cues from Valmiki Ramayana, which focused more on the human side of Rama than the divine side, which is the focus in the versions of Tulasidas and Kamban.
The flow of the book is bit on the slower side, which helps the reader to get absorbed and empathize with the emotions that the characters are going through at a point of time.
One of the most elaborate sections that deserve a special mention are- Dasaratha's longing for Rama at the time of his going on exile, Rama's pain after the abdustion of Sita and Kumbhakarana's dialogue with Ravana before the ultimate battle which addresses the moral dilemma that he faces.
One of the points that this book touches upon is the comparison of Vibhishana and Kumbhakarana and their relative stance on the principle of dharma.
Both are correct in their own stances but, the author Rajaji treats the Dharma of Vibhishana to be the better choice in such a situations and rightly absolves Vibhishana of being called a traitor to the Rakhshasa family.
Overall, this book is a great read. For people who are well versed with the story of Ramayana, there is nothing new as far as the content is concerned, but the treatment of the epic by Rajaji, who himself was one of the most intellectually distinguished personalities of his time; is commendable.
I will rate this book as five. Go pick up your copy or download it on your kindle for just 99 bucks.
Apr 25, Karthikeyan rated it really liked it. A true rendition of the Valmiki Ramayanam. The language is simple and fun to read. Rajaji's way of comparing Valmiki's work with other versions of Ramayana and citing appropriate material from other sources shows his wide-ranging knowledge.
Too many lessons to learn from this epic. This has given me a chance to pick sections from this story that I will ever cite for a lifetime, to myself and to others.
Aug 06, Div rated it really liked it. I read this book a long time ago but really enjoyed it. I am glad that I read it. One of the best translated version of the Ramayan and easy to read..
Simple and forthright in style and using words.. Oct 08, JJ rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is a retelling of Valmiki's ancient poem, the Ramayana.
The original poem is tremendously long - usually running for at least three large volumes in translation. For many readers without a scholarly or religious interest in ancient India, this is just too long.
For many more particularly non-Indian readers, the original may also pose certain cultural challenges. Rajagopalachari here provides a bridge across these gulfs.
His retelling is targeted both at adults and at children. He writ This book is a retelling of Valmiki's ancient poem, the Ramayana.
He writes himself in the epilogue: A word to the children who read these chapters. I have told the story of the Prince of Ayodhya mainly for your sake.
Grownup people may read Vaalmeeki and Kamban. As such, this isn't the most linguistically rich retelling of the Ramayana.
Nevertheless, it's a real joy to read. The story itself follows a great prince, Rama, who through a series of treacherous events ends up living as an exile in the forest.
There, he faces various trials, including the kidnapping of his wife, whom he struggles to recover.
If that summary sounds familiar, that's probably because it is. The Ramayana falls comfortably within the archetypal tradition of 'hero proving himself in the wilderness' stories.
There are similar traits in the Epic of Gilgamesh as well as in the poetry of Ovid, and in no shortage of early English poetry - to name just a few examples.
Of course, that is no discredit to the story. This archetypal narrative is one that we hear again and again - and it never gets old. I fear there is a tendency to imagine the literature of ancient times as being something centred around South-Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
Besides the Bhagavad Gita , this was my first prolonged exposure to the literary tradition of Ancient India. I had little preconceived notions going into it.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a story that reminded of Homer, all the while carrying with it the same weight, and no doubt a similar influence too.
Great read but with heaps of grammatical mistakes. Gave 5 stars just because the title name is "Ramayana" It is always great to read indian religious scriptures.
I have read the hardcopy of this book a long time ago. But i was very astonished to see heaps of grammatical mistakes in this ebook on kindle.
I was able to see the mistakes because i have read the hardcopy and saw Ramayana on doordarshan during my childhood. But the mistakes in book are bound to confuse a first time reader of this grea Great read but with heaps of grammatical mistakes.
But the mistakes in book are bound to confuse a first time reader of this great book. I request the kindle management to rectify the mistakes in the ebook.
Sep 28, Vijay Peddada rated it it was amazing. Simple and best way of narrating this great epic. Aug 28, Sara rated it liked it Shelves: I first read the Ramayana when I lived in India a decade ago, and had a much different impression of it reading it again.
First, now that I'm a mother myself, I see more clearly how engrossing a story it is for kids, a way to impart the values of a culture in the most engaging and memorable way.
