    Description
    Rams story as a metaphor for human strengths and weaknesses and as a window to inner divinity' - Tehelka / Ram is maryada purushottam, the supreme upholder of social values, scion of the Raghu clan, jewel of the solar dynasty, seventh avatar of Vishnu. Reviled by feminists, appropriated by politicians, he remains serene in his majesty, the only Hindu deity to be worshiped as a king. Join Devdutt Pattanaik as he explores the relevance of Ram in modern times, peeling back the layers of metaphors and meanings in the many retellings of his tale.

    Ram in a new look! Liked that.

    Mythology is a tricky subject. It can easily become monotonous and heavy for a naïve reader. Patnaik does a great job of making a legendary story with profound inferences so interesting to read. I know I started late with this series, but happy to have “The Book of Ram” on my book shelf. And looking forward to having the whole Patnaik series here.

    Must buy!

    Ram is an fascinating character. Hindu's worship him as Vishnu's Avtar. In this book you will know more about him as he was also known as Purosottam. If you are a fan of Devdutt then go for this book. He has explained everything simply. Packing and delivery was good. Thanks Flipkart.
