82. Understanding Lord Ram from all angles

 A book to understand Lord Ram from many angles.

This book, written by Dr. Devdutt Pattanaik, (supposedly one of India’s foremost mythologists), explores the relevance of Lord Ram in modern times by looking at him as :

• Ramayan’s protagonist
• Dashrath’s son
• Vishwamitra’s student
• Sita’s husband
• Lakshman’s brother
• Hanuman’s master
• Ravan’s enemy
• Ayodhya’s king
• Vishnu’s incarnation
• Valmiki’s inspiration
• Hindutva’s icon.

As I decided to find out more, I came across this interesting interview of the author with Rediff.com titled –  ‘It is fashionable to revile Ram’
