India's most beloved epic, the Ramayana is the story of Rama's journey across the subcontinent. It is during this journey that the dutiful son makes the spiritual journey from man to god. In this book, the author physically retraces the blue-skinned god's steps and draws back the veil on the mysteries and riches of India through a retelling of the epic.
A travel book unlike any other - a vivid retelling of the great epic, interwoven with a lively and sympathetic account of the author's encounters across the subcontinent. -- INDIA TODAY
