The story of Rama and Sita has a unique status in the literature of almost every language of Asia, thanks to its extolment of a value-based life as superior to one that prizes power or pelf; it belongs to the world.

This book offers a critical and comparative study of the earliest Valmiki's classic in Sanskrit, known as adi-kavya, and the first version in the Tamil language, which arose ten centuries later. The author, Mr. K.S. Srinivasan, is a recognised scholar in the field.
