India’s Epic Ramayana for the youth and kids

Author Name: Shiv Shankar | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

What to write or what not to write now was in my mind after writing a few books. What to write about was the thought after the decision making. The best topic or theme to choose for the present age especially for children and youth is India’s great Epic Ramayana.” There is no panacea or remedy for the country’s ills unless the children and youth of today emulate the lives of great men of the world and life-like characters (once alive in real life according to ancient scripts and “Puranas”) in the Epic of India, “Ramayana” whose protagonists live a life of worthiness following righteousness, honesty, non-acceptance of gifts, control of human anger, greed, anxiety, hurriedness in mad unworthy pursuits, corrupt practices in all our acts, firm resistance to theft, robbery, sex abuse especially child abuse.

What are we going to do to fight against corruption and other maladies in society? The children may ask – The answer is children and youth who are the pillars of tomorrow’s world should learn not to accept any gift from others – other than birthday and wedding gifts. This would certainly help us lead a life with self-respect and honor.

This immortal story of Ramayana may perhaps help to reduce the evils in society and direct them to the right path of ‘Dharma’ and honest living.
