9788192455594: The Bridge to Lanka: A compilation of significant events from the 'Email' archives of Ramayana

Rather than dwell on the controversy over the existence of a causeway between India and Sri Lanka, The Bridge to Lanka takes us on a magical tour to experience some of the significant events that have been vividly set forth in the epic Ramayana. The concept of a bridge to the island provides an ideal panorama for this journey. The Epic says · It took five days for the army to complete the Bridge, with the expertise of Nila & Nala and guidance from Sagara. · It was a curving Bridge covering thirty five kilometres over the sea, and from a distance appeared like an enormous forefinger pointing towards Lanka. · A Shiva Linga was consecrated at the base of the Bridge, before the army marched along the causeway towards Lanka. The Question Remains · What was the purpose of this Bridge? · Whose idea was it? · When was it constructed? From the email archives of Ramayana, The Bridge to Lanka tries to answer these questions, with graphic illustrations.

Book Description Notion Press, 2012. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. Recent studies of the ruins reveal that the entire stretch of the bridge also consisted of coral reefs resting on tombolos which could not have been a natural formation, since corals normally form over layers of rocks. Further, based on radiocarbon dating of the structures, they roughly match the dates mentioned in the Ramayana. The Epic Says: It took five days for the army to complete the Bridge, with the expertise of Nila & Nala and guidance from Sagara. It was a curving Bridge covering thirty five kilometres over the sea, and from a distance appeared like an enormous forefinger pointing towards Lanka.
