Prince Ram, son of Dasharath, is loved and revered by everyone in the kingdom of Ayodhya. But Queen Kaikeyis greed and ambition cause him to be exiled for fourteen years. Along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman, he leaves the kingdom for dense forests full of rakshasas. Soon Raavan, the terrifying king of Lanka, finds his way to them and abducts Sita. How does Ram, the bravest warrior of all, cross hills and rivers and the sea to rescue Sita and bring her back home? Upendrakishore Ray Chowdhurys delightful retelling of the Ramayana has enthralled Bengali and other readers for over a century. With this vivid translation, a new generation of girls and boys can travel into an ancient world of princes and rakshasas, vanaras and ogres, epic battles and flying chariots, honour and bravery, loyalty and friendship.
