The Ramayan has never ceased to invite imagination. The Kindle Short read Bhoomija is yet another take on Ramayan. It takes on the premise of Ramayan without even beginning to narrate the story. It dwells with the premise of how and why Valmiki wrote the Ramayan.
I was curious about this story as this comes from Anand Neelakantan, who spoke objectively about Raavan with Asura: the tale of the vanquished. I wanted to know how he would spin this. But this story speaks of the Ramayan without talking of the hero or the anti-hero. This is a non-judgemental take on Ramayan. It is a take on the premise of Ramayan and how over the many years generations have given us their own interpretations based on their judgment. This story is about Sita in her many names. It is about what she represents as the daughter of the soil. It is, beyond doubt, about Ramayan.
This story is about Sita in her many names. It is about what she represents as the daughter of the soil. It is, beyond doubt, about Ramayan. So, if ever Ramayan has mystified you this story tries to demystify and decode it to you.
