Valmiki and Vyasa, as authors of the two great Epic poems, the Ramayana and Mahabhabharata, have influenced cultural, artistic and religious life not only in India, but in several other parts of the world. Writing in the post-Vedic and Upanishadic period, they became the precursors of classical Sanskrit literature. Their works enjoy great popularity and provide inspiration for artistic creations in literature, drama and music, even today.

In the course of time, due to their hoary antiquity, their personalities have become shrouded in folklores and beliefs.

The present volume, written by well-known scholars throws more light on their life and personality and gives a readable account of the two sages.
