Description

India's most beloved epic, the Ramayana is the story of Rama's journey across the subcontinent. It is during this journey that the dutiful son makes the spiritual journey from man to god. In this book, the author physically retraces the blue-skinned god's steps and draws back the veil on the mysteries and riches of India through a retelling of the epic.

A travel book unlike any other - a vivid retelling of the great epic, interwoven with a lively and sympathetic account of the author's encounters across the subcontinent. -- INDIA TODAY

This informative and entertaining book is something to be thankful for. - - THE NEW YORK TIMES

Quite possibly the most perceptive book that I have come across on India. - - WASHINGTON POST BOOK REVIEW

Perhaps the most appealing rendering of Valmiki's poetry available in English . . . One recaptures in his narration a world of visual grandeur otherwise accessible only to those who can read Valmiki in the original. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
