Publisher's Summary

Would King Dasharatha even have his coveted sons were it not for the sacrifice of his daughter Shanta?

Was Manthara an evil, conniving handmaid to the queen or a loving mother who tried to protect her ward from palace intrigues?

How did Meenakshi of the beautiful eyes transform into the embodiment of ugliness and immoral lust? In an epic that revolves around the life of a righteous prince, what role do the women play?

As best-selling author Anand Neelakantan peels back the layers of Valmiki’s timeless saga, these stories of ambition, love, devotion and courage shine through, inviting listeners to look at the women anew. Lovers, sisters, wives and mothers who hold a complex epic together - these are the women of Valmiki’s Ramayana.

A really great experience of the past.

A really beautiful collection of stories from Valmiki. The stories really touched my heart. Too good to miss.
