Valmiki has barely put down his pen after completing his magnificent creation, the epic Ramayan, when he realises he has competition. The sage Narad tells him that there is a better Ramayan, written by Hanuman. Valmiki is devastated! As the story of Hanuman's Ramayan unfolds, humorously and gently, so does the idea that there is no one version of the well-loved story about Ram, Sita, Hanuman and Ravan, but many. Here, the quirky illustrations based on the style of Mithila folk paintings tell their own story.

An exquisite retelling

An exquisite retelling by Devdutt Pattanaik... Young readers would definitely love the story but they would also have to deal in this retelling with raw human emotions in hitherto ‘sainted’ characters from our mythology. The pictures not just add value to the story but are a nice way of piquing the interest of young minds to know more about the Ramayana and also Indian arts and traditional styles of painting.
