Book 3 Demons of Chitrakut reviewed here On Amazon. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. I am enjoying this book and will probably be reading the whole series in the future. This is an insult to the knowledge of the difference between the two. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize there was a Sanskrit glossary in the back of the book until after I finished reading it.

On the flip side, the book has heavy Bollywood influence in the way people speak to each asshok melodramatically at times, Sumitra crushing the pallu between her teeth in an emotional moment, Kausalya placing a finger on Dasaratha’s lips to stop him from speaking of his death etc.

Having depicted different aspects of Ramayana in dance and wa The trouble with reading a book based on Indian mythology – especially ones like Meluha and this one – is that one keeps trying to map what one is reading with what one knows. Please go through my review written on my blog: But nothing more scary than that. Flow of story is excelente and the way it is presented was awesome. Banker also sprinkles the narration with some Sanskrit and Hindi words, to give it an authentic feel.


Ashok Banker says that the original story has not been told properly, i. After finish reading the banket, I did a quick search online for the other titles in the series. A few bits bear a striking resemblance to the prose of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.

Thank god it’s done. Will post summary of Book-1 soon in a day or so. The book also dwells on relationships – the brotherly love the four brothers shares, the relationship King Dasratha has with his queens, the ashoi disciples have for their guru, the love and concern queens have for their sons.

The book annoyed me at times. By using this ramayans, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Even though I have read that the author has added his own imagination in the story telling and that his version of the story deviates a lot from the original Ramayana, the novel refreshed a lot of my childhood memories that I had of the epic saga.
