Synopses & Reviews
Though staunch believers in the divinity of Rama and the Ramayana might find this book blasphemous, it is an insightful record of thoughts about the Ramayana as a framework for the present day Hindu family system. Rather than being a blind critic of the epic, this book is a celebration of irreverence and rationality, while attacking faith and reverence. The scope of this book is such that it provides the author with a stage to perform the dance of life while he jumps from conclusion to conclusion. It is essential to read this book in it's entirely to get the intent of this book, and for a reader who grasps the conclusions the book is breathtakingly paced.
