Tulsidas (1532-1623 AD) poet and philosopher, told the story of Ram, prince of Ayodhya, in Avadhi, a dialect of Hindi spoken in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. Ram Charit Manas consists of over a thousand stanzas, each about 10 to 18 lines.

Over the years it has been dramatised and performed by numerous theatre troupes. The dramatisation is known as Ramlila and has become an integral part of Dassera celebrations, especially in the Regions that speak Hindi.

By telling the story of Ram in a common language, Tulsidas made the Ramayan, which was written originally in Sanskrit, accessible to the masses.

This Amar Chitra Katha Special Issue brings together the Ram Charit Manas in five sections - The Childhood Days of Ram, Ram in Exile, The Abduction of Sita, The Search for Sita and Ram the Victorious.


"Amar Chitra Kathas are a glorious tribute to India's rich cultural heritage. These books have been an integral part of my children's early years, as they have been for many other families across India Comics are a great way of reaching out to children, inculcating reading habits and driving their quest to learn more about our roots."
--- Narayan Murthy, Chief Mentor, Infosys
