Editorial Reviews


ot fare I got this book for 374 now its 339. Wow what a book. My friends came home when I was reading this book and they all liked this book so now all our group has ordered it. This is not bound by religion or class. Expands and aligns the understanding and perception. Must read by me. I have also read his earlier works. Thanks for mentioning me Dr Manoj Agarwal. I later thought price does not matter when I compare it to the wisdom I received after reading this and earlier books. Thanks to Devdutt Pattanaik from sharing and helping me to see quite a different viewpoint. --Archana on Oct 24, 2013

A masterpiece by Devdutt Pattanaik. I used to doubt about Ram being a God. After reading this, the question is gone. The Sita was never gone, Ram never abandoned her. Hanumaan knowing the truth about Sita's Ram and Ram's Sita. Great story, even greatly re-told. The wisdom of Sita is the true rule, the rule of Ram is the true wisdom! --Hardeep Singh on Feb 2, 2014

Fantastic read. If you read it with soul and emotion and not like some "Hindu" scripture, and just like a novel, you will surely be touched and might even have watery eyes at some places in this epic of wisdom and logic. My only message to the readers is, people, buy it. It is a treasure chest for a successful and peaceful life ahead and a healthy human psychology if you understood Pattanaik's perspective. Well, It's all about perspective, isn't it. A famous line from this book, --Bharat Aswal on Dec 10, 2013
