Sri’s Rama: excerpts from my book

Sri’s Rama, my maiden book, is a retelling in verse of the Ramayana, the ancient scripture/epic that originated in India.

I plan to share excerpts from Sri’s Rama regularly through this blog. And I shall include my sketches depicting the various scenes too.

Here’s the start.

Glossary for some of the Sanskrit (ancient Indian language) terms:

Dharma: righteousness

Jivatma: the souls of all created beings

paramatma: the Supreme

Purushottama: the best of creation, the best among men.

shlokas: verses

Note: Many Indians are familiar with terms like the above, though they may not know any Sanskrit at all.
