Ramayana – Unravelled by M.D. Mundhra is a beautifully written and well-researched book. Though the book is directly emanating from the epic saga of Ramayana – this time it has something more to offer than just the retelling of the Lord Rama’s victory over Ravana and allied kingdoms. The book is about logic and lessons that one can grasp from the Ramayana to use in personal and professional life. It is a complete story, however with some different pretexts, and on the context of religion, humanity, karma, and much more.
The author is a highly-acclaimed educated person, known for using lessons from Ramayana in his professional and personal life to solve many issues, while at the same time also inspired mass to opt for the path of righteousness. This book is way great than any other plain and black & white representation – it is full of lines, sketches, and diagrams coupled with lucid narration.
Those who have read Ramayana during their school or college life or personally will conform by the value of the content, and those who have not yet got a chance to get introduced will find it a great piece of mythological literature.
The book is well laid out with proper 29 chapters. Right since the beginning, the author did a great job by outlining the character list from both the camps. This act fosters the reading and avoids confusion. Well, the core theme of the book is to nudge the implementation of logic and lessons from Ramayana to one’s life. The book talks about Ram Rajya – a golden age. If you read it slowly and properly, you will get to know why that era was called a golden era. The world since then has been bereaved of many moral values. The author asserts if Ramayana concepts and lessons brought forward, well then it’s possible for our nation to establish ‘Ram Rajya’ once again and it can lead the world with proper light and love.
This book reiterates that women empowerment was highly evident in that era. The inside story of Mandodari, Sita, Trijata, Vedavati, etc. supports the justification with full light and gusto.
From home conspiracies to Rama’s journey in the forest to Hanuman in Lanka – all has been wrapped up nicely. In all its light, the book is told from a good and unbiased perspective. It is a must read book for all the people across the world, as today we are facing many issues that are direct results of our decaying moral values and lack of basic virtues.
Writing and editing is perfect, by using colours in the book the author put an engaging factor in the book. Overall, a brilliant re-telling with self-help aspects. The author’s wisdom shines throughout the book.
