The Ramayana Tradition in Southeast Asia
The Rama story has inspired the local artists in countries outside the Indian sub-continent to interpret it in their own media and languages, with a blend of their own personality and cultural environment. This book is a collection of research work involving four major literary versions of the Rama story in Sanskrit, Tamil, Malay and Thai. These stories keep the cultures alive and intact both in India and Southeast Asia. Very Good Paperback. First Edition 365 pages with diagrams, glossary, bibliography and index.
