A short read full of literary gems which doesn't explore much of the protagonists life
Reviewed in India on 11 April 2018
Ravana had a sister and she played an important role in Ramayana. A very little about her is written though. What she was doing before she met the warrior duo in the Jungle? And, what happened to her after the deadly battle between Rama (or Ram) and Ravana (or Raavan)? Answers to these questions are mostly unknown or unanswered for many of us.
On behalf of our team, I tried to explore this book if it has the answers. And what I found is? Well, no the book doesn't have all the answers but hint about a lot of incidents.
It is a short EBook and talking about majority of incidents explored in this book will definitely affect the reader's experience while reading it, so I will try to not to discuss about the incident which could have been spoilers.
The book tells us that no kingdom can be ideal and you cannot satisfy all the people all the time. It is not possible for the God also to do that. Because, possibly, everyone follows his/her part based on his/her karma and the consequences which are result of the same.
A war doesn't end when one party wins over the other. It ends there of course, formally. The aftershocks of the war disorients the lives of the people who are affected with and carries forward even through generations. So, we can say, only love trumps all!
You can share happiness with anyone, but, sorrow and grief can only be understood by those who experienced similar things.
There are many more lessons or conclusions you can reach to by reading the book.
In terms of writing the book has gems of sentences and phrases found almost throughout. While the tale is not taking us anywhere in linear direction, it is associated fictionally with an important incident after the war between Ram and Ravan as said earlier. The lives of poor people is explored with conviction by the author.
If you would like to read something short yet heavy, full of sorrows yet leading to happiness, talking about sad incidents but showing the hope, good at literary attributes, then this book is a good choice.
Currently there are book promotion offers are running and this book is available for just Rs. 5 at: https://amzn.to/2qn6ZX5
At this rate it is definitely a good choice.
We would give it 3.5 stars out of 5.
