“I, Rama, King of Ayodhya” – is a first person account of how the famed Hero monarch would narrate his tale, as viewed by him, his first hand view of the spectacular turn of events that would unfold themselves mysteriously, chronicling the path which immortalized his name, from a mere prince to the very epitome of manliness.
Ravi Venu has done an absolutely fabulous job with this opening volume of the trilogy "Age of Seers". I'd rather say it is a modern day take on the Ramayana - the epic . We've all grown up watching Ramayana and Mahabharata getting re-enacted on television, in case you enjoyed that part of your childhood, you will love Venu's efforts in this book. The prologue proudly rants about Rama in the late years of his life, narrating his extra-ordinary tale to his friends and his sons. It might seem like a futile effort at times, but when you finish reading this book, you'll get all your answers.
The two major highlights of the book are Vishwamitra and Kaikeyi. They have time and again proven that they had a big role to play in making this world a secure place for the human race. Unlike Ramayana, Kaikeyi has been shown as a warrior princess and her clarity and strength of mind is impeccable, whereas Vishwamitra's righteousness won him the title of 'Brahma-rishi' - The great Sage. One thing I can assure you of, is that this book is a well-researched combination of old day Ramayana and fiction but I must say, that it targets a limited audience.
As we move further in the book, the life of an adolescent Rama comes into being. Sita is also introduced here, their love and the kind of strength it held has been shown in a completely new light. It restores the reader's faith in undying love that can accomplish the world. Then the brother duo, Rama and Lakshamana are taught the skill of war, apart from the high morals that they have been imbibing since birth.
I would not spoil the fun for you by spilling any more beans. Go, pick up the book if you love contemporary mixed with a little fiction.onvenience of the next users.
