Back of the Book

Ravana, perhaps the most popular Rakshasa in Indian mythology, is known as the villain in the Ramayana and the epic would not have been what it is without this great Rakshasa.

Yet, Ravana is much more than a mere abductor. Born out of the union of a Rishi and a Rakshasi, a devout shiv-bhakt and a mighty king, Ravana is no ordinary Rakshasa.

This book attempts to bring out a comprehensive and well-rounded character of Ravana. The various little dots of information about the Rakshasa king as given in Valmiki Ramayana have been picked with care, collated and composed with presentations in several other version of the Ramayana, and the long, horary lineage of the demon king painstakingly put together to present this villain of villains as a legend worthy of greater attention.
