Lose yourself in this epic adventure thriller, based on the Ramayana, the story of Lord Ram, written by the multi-million bestselling Indian author Amish; the author who has transformed Indian Fiction with his unique combination of mystery, mythology, religious symbolism, and philosophy. In this book, you will find all the familiar characters you have heard of like Lord Ram, Lord Lakshman, Lady Sita, Lord Hanuman, Lord Bharat and many others from Ayodhya. And even some from Lanka like Ravan! Read this bestseller, the first book of the Ram Chandra Series.
3400 BC India, Ayodhya is weakened by divisions. A terrible war has taken its toll. The damage runs deep. The demon King of Lanka, Raavan, does not impose his rule on the defeated. He, instead, imposes his trade. Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know. A tortured and ostracised prince. A prince they tried to break. A prince called Ram. He loves his country, even when his countrymen torment him. He stands alone for the law. His band of brothers, his Sita, and he, against the darkness of chaos. Will Ram rise above the taint that others heap on him? Will his love for Sita sustain him through his struggle? Will he defeat the demon Lord Raavan who destroyed his childhood? Will he fulfill the destiny of the Vishnu?
