Invisible Shades of Ramayana

Books by Maj Gen A K Shori (Retd)

Ramayana is one of the most sacred, respected and widely read books in the world. Though there are so many versions of Ramayana, the original one was compiled by Valmiki. There are so many characters, events and personalities who play a very important role in making the whole story of Shri Rama into Ramayana and we have very little knowledge about such personalities, their wisdom and thought process.

We know Hanuman as a very brave and strong personality,but we are ignorant about his intellect, his skills as a diplomat and similar other qualities. We know that Vibhishana tried to reason with Ravana before leaving him, but what were his arguments on morality? We are unaware of Surpanakha’s knowledge on the spy system, Marich’s views on morality and Kumbhkaran’s ideas on administration. In this book, an attempt has been made to highlight the invisible qualities of twenty such personalities who make Valmiki Ramayana an epic.

Seven Shades of Rama

Books by Maj Gen A K Shori (Retd)

The rich reservoir of ancient knowledge contains the wisdom which can help solve our present day problems. The seven traits of Rama are ingrained in every human being as a son, brother, husband, warrior, a bit of ruler and a rishi; the blending where of leads to perfection. The author deplores the intellectual bankruptcy which is creating a vacuum in the personal, social and political lives resulting in mediocrity projecting itself as the savior of mankind and thereby befooling generations.

Rama, the ‘Maryada Purushotama’, as an epitome of perfection provides an ideal and a reliable source of inspiration, through the life he lived, to resolve issues pertaining to inter-personal problems and make the society a place worth living. It is a bold endeavor to elevate the great epic, Ramayana, to a higher pedestal which takes it way beyond just depicting through Ramleelas, TV serials or keeping wrapped and worshipped as a matter of routine. The reader is sure to benefit from this precise and thought provoking treatise.
