I jut remembered a piece of info I wanted to share with all. I recently happened to chance upon a version of the Ramayan by Ashok Banker. It is in fact a series. I must say I liked it. Is it true to the original...well... it is the same story but the details tend to be quite different. So if you want to read the Ramayana we all know and revere then the best version is C.Rajagoplachari's. However if you want to read the epic as a beautiful fantasy this new series is really worth the big bucks. Check it out!!!
