About this Item: Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The epic story of Rama, which is part of the Indian collective consciousness, has been retold in many regional languages. Pre-eminent among the many vernacular retellings of the Ramayana is the twelfth-century Tamil version by Kamban. The son of a temple drummer, Kamban is reputed to have had an impressive mastery of Tamil and Sanskrit classics. Fascinated by the lore of Ramayana, he immersed himself totally in it. Though Kamban acknowledges his indebtedness to the Sanskrit version of the Ramayana by Valmiki, his is an independent work, enriched by various religious, philosophical and literary influences. The Kamba Ramayana differs from Valmiki’s in significant ways. Though cast in the heroic mould of a Purushotama or ‘the best among men’, Valmiki’s Rama is still a man. Kamban, on the other hand, never allows the reader to forget the godhood of Rama. His Ravana too, though flawed, is a heroic figure. While Valmiki’s diction is sparse and direct, Kamban’s exuberant prose sparkles with wit and inventiveness. Translated into English by the late P.S. Sundaram, this edition has been abridged and edited by his long-time friend N.S. Jagannathan. Though pared down from the original six volumes to a single one, this translation retains the magic and poetry of the original. Printed Pages: 464. Size: 13 Cms x 20 Cms. Seller Inventory # 017039

About this Item: Parimal Publications, Delhi, India, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The story of Rama has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. The complete story of the Ramayana was hardly popular with the masses in complete form till it was composed by the sage Valmiki in a book form. The Ramayana which is known as the Adi-kavya or the first ornate poem according to the indigenous estimation is ascribed to the sage Valmiki, the Adikavi or the first author of the ornate poetry. The Ramayana deserves to be called as the Adikavya because of the characteristics of the ornate poetry, such as the description of nature and the presence of the figures of speech, both of words and the sense are quite auspicious. A number of Ramayanas were composed in different parts of the country. The regional Ramayanas were composed not only in the north but also in the south, in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages. Of these regional works, the Kamba Ramayana which was composed by Maharshi Kamban, possibly was the earliest. The Kamba Ramayana comprises of six kandas instead of seven of the Valmiki Ramayana.Printed Pages: 1001. Size: 19 x 25 Cm. Seller Inventory # 100608

The sage Kamban was well-versed in the southern recention of the Valmiki Ramayana, which would be evident from the following episodes which have been included by him in his work:- 1. The churning of the ocean and taking of Vishnu in the form of Mohini. 2. Conversation between Lakshman and Tara. 3. Destruction of Dhrumkulya. 4. Battle between Sugriva and Ravana. 5. Journey of she-monkeys to Ayodhya. 6. Dialogue between Kumbhakar?a and Vibhishana. This is the first time that an English Translation of this great Tamil work is in front of the curious readers in two hard-bound volumes. Printed Pages: 1001. Seller Inventory # 33303
