About the Book

 

The Ramayana, from the time immomorial has dominated the Indian religious scene. Right from the age of the sage Valmiki, the poineer in Sanskrit poetry, the theme of Ramayana had such a mass appeal that during the times subsequent to those of Valmiki a number of works on the theme, appeared in the entire length and breadth of the country not only in Sanskrit but also in the regional languages. The work of the Ramayana of Krttivasa happens to be one of them. In the eastern region of the country, Madhava Kandali composed his Ramayana in Assamese language in the fourteenth century A.D.· who more or less followed Valmiki in the narration of events and other details. But Krttivasa, the sacred son of the soil, who composed his work in Bengali, a century later, deviated from the traditional text of the sage valmiki to a considerable extent, making it immensely interesting and appealing in more than one way. This has been fully brought out by Krttivasa at various stages in his work. Interestingly he, at several places has also high-lighted different points of view relating to one and the event, available in different texts, which makes it a unique composition. The present work is the English translation of the Krttivasa Ramayana, originally composed in Bengali language and would be of considerable interest and appeal to the readers.
