9780143099673: King of Ayodhya (Ramayana)

The original Ramayana a classic tale of war between absolute Good and Evil was written 3,000 years ago by Valmiki, a reformed thief-turned-sage. Now, with breathtaking imagination, Indian novelist Ashok K. Banker has recreated this epic tale for modern readers everywhere. Rama, king-in-waiting, has crossed the ocean, and the great war has begun. Ravana, lord of demons, unleashes terrible sorcery to deal a crushing blow to Rama’s forces. Before they can recover, he sends forth a legion of warbred rakshasas more terrible than any seen before, and the soil of Lanka runs red with the blood of Rama’s warriors. Still, the brave vanars and bears rally and fight on, despite the formidable odds. The war descends into a brutal maelstrom as champions die and heroes sacrifice their lives for Rama’s cause. And then Ravana commits the most dreaded act of all: rather than surrender Sita, he executes her before Rama’s eyes. On this darkest day, it hardly seems to matter that Rama’s exile is ended, and that he is now free to return to his homeland to claim his rightful place as King of Ayodhya.

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The original Ramayana was written three thousand years ago. Now, with breathtaking imagination and brilliant storytelling, Ashok K. Banker has recreated this epic tale for modern readers everywhere. Rama, soon to be King of Ayodhya, crosses the ocean to wage his war of dharma against the rakshasa forces of the demonlord Ravana. The valiant vanars and bears suffer huge losses when Ravana unleashes his iniquitous sorcery on them, destroying tens of thousands of Rama`s loyal soldiers. Despite the formidable odds they fight on even as the warfare spirals into a maelstrom of unimaginable carnage and brutality. And then, Ravana does the unthinkable. Hovering over the battlefield in his flying vehicle he executes Sita in full public view, right before Rama`s unbelieving eyes. Rama`s grief and rage know no bounds and on this cataclysmic day he finally draws upon his ultimate reservoir of Brahman shakti. Invoking the all-powerful dev-astras, the Bow of Vishnu and the Arrow of Shiva, he prepares for a reckoning and a victory like no other . . . Printed Pages: 600. Bookseller Inventory # 20805
