The original Ramayana was written three thousand years ago. Now, with breathtaking imagination and brilliant storytelling, Ashok K Banker has recreated this epic tale for modern readers everywhere.

The bestial demon hordes roar towards Ayodhya having swept all before them. Rama cannot return home to defend his family. He must journey to Mithila-a city lying directly in the path of destruction-to join a small band of heroes planning a valiant stand against the armies of darkness. Can Rama unearth a hidden dev-astra to help in his battle against his nemesis, the demonlord Ravana?

A milestone. Banker brings a magnificent sense of predestination to his task.
