Book Summary

 

The Book introduces us to some major and minor characters in the great Epics – the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. The author has been very selective in the process, highlighting their excellent qualities of the head and the heart as well as their exceptional achievements. These characters, by dint of excellence in moral values, have universal appeal, being devoid of sectarian or dogmatic notions.

 

The author lays great stress on authenticity and has, accordingly, excluded characters of purely mythological import. He has not been given to hero worship and has been critical of the failures, where apparent. The Book further includes exalted characters, not so much in the lime light.

 

The Book, apart from being useful for the general reader, has something to offer even to the discerning reader, and, therefore, has wide appeal.

There are three Appendices, two of which are a store house of wisdom culled from famous dialogues of Yudhishthira. The third one acquaints us with the world-famous sculptures in the ancient temple at Prambanan, Java, depicting scenes from the Ramayana.
