      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product

      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description
    Lose yourself in this epic adventure thriller, based on the Ramayana, the story of Lord Ram, written by the multi-million bestselling Indian Author Amish; the author who has transformed Indian Fiction with his unique combination of mystery, mythology, religious symbolism and philosophy. In this book, you will find all the familiar characters you have heard of, like Lord Ram, Lord Lakshman, Lady Sita, Lord Hanuman, Lord Bharat and many others from Ayodhya. And even some from Lanka like Ravana! Read this BESTSELLER, the highest selling book of 2015, the first book of the Ram Chandra Series.
    Awarded the 2015 Raymond Crossword Award for Popular Choice (English Fiction)

    Ram Rajya. The Perfect Land. But perfection has a price. He paid that price.

    3400 BCE. INDIA

    Ayodhya is weakened by divisions. A terrible war has taken its toll. The damage runs deep. The demon King of Lanka, Raavan, does not impose his rule on the defeated. He, instead, imposes his trade. Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know. A tortured and ostracised prince. A prince they tried to break. A prince called Ram.

    He loves his country, even when his countrymen torment him. He stands alone for the law. His band of brothers, his Sita, and he, against the darkness of chaos.

    Will Ram rise above the taint that others heap on him? Will his love for Sita sustain him through his struggle? Will he defeat the demon Lord Raavan who destroyed his childhood? Will he fulfil the destiny of the Vishnu?

    Begin an epic journey with Amish's latest: the Ram Chandra Series. >br/>

    An enjoyable read

    It is not every other day that I sit late at night reading a novel. As distracted as I am, I prefer reading books in installments. But Amish's Scion of Ikshvaku (Book 1 of the Ram Chandra Series) was an exception.

    The first thought on reading the initial pages was the similarity in writing style to the Shiva Trilogy. Amish is one of my favourite Indian authors for two reasons:- The theme, which is always based on ancient Indian history (I deliberately avoid the term "mythology" because I do ...

    Power packed beginning

    The first book was really something with amish in his old narrative style.
    The only cons I found are:
    1) Couple of spelling mistakes in the first few chapters.
    2) Use of very modern languages like touche and some others.

    Apart from the cons it is a very good book and is almost like a film going on. Very much recommended to all who wants to read the old mythological stories with new interpretation and in the mean time have the same thrill as we are used to from amish.
    Will be waiting for it...

    An enthraling experience !

    Amish did it again. He proved that we all have that ability to become god provided we are willing to give up the required sacrifice.

    Don't buy products from this seller

    The book was clearly a pirated version. Poor quality paper and binding was coming off. This seller is offering lowest price because of substandard quality. Even buying from a certified buyer at flipkart was a rip off. It has never happened before.

    Great potential unrealized

    ?To the read??er, the key USP of a fantasy book is to be able to visualize the author's word painting. As an author you get unbridled freedom to paint a landscape that is beyond even the wildest possible dreams. The promise of a trip to one's own wonderland is what makes people like me a sucker for fantasy genre.

    confused author Below average..........

    It looks like Amish is confused writing the novel and sometimes while reading things seem to happen in present time like, " I love my India.", "Police." etc. Also he mixed fiction with mythology even mixed Mahabharat with Ramayana only characters are from Ramayan and everything else is pure fiction. If you want to write fiction then write fiction and do justice and if you want to write mythology write after proper research. For the sake of logic facts have been distorted badly. Its not recomm...

    Below average

    A very bad mix of mythology and fiction. The author seems to be more affected by whats happening currently in society and included it in the novel citing it as a way of life at that point of time. Ex is Nirbhaya rape case of delhi and a fellow acquitted because he was minor. The event was presented in novel citing as one of the event happened at that point of time. The novel is neither mythological nor fictional. I was surprised to read the reviews given at the beginning of the book. I am sur...

    Not as impressive as the trilogy

    If you have read Trilogy - you will NOT find this read gripping. The story moves on loosely and at times seems Amish is trying too hard to fit in logic to mythology. Was disappointed but will still give a shot to the next volume before calling it a day..
