Ramayana As Recompense

If you remember first year, we had this thing called a “class play”. If you were my classmate and/or close friend and/or acquaintance in first year too, then you would remember my contribution to our play–a fantastic one at that: I was co-director. If your definition for co-director is “transcendental slacker who leaves job to others”, that is. Needless to say, I was about as useful as an umbrella in the middle of El Nino. Subsequently I have felt regret at my actions, partially because my lack of involvement in the play got me a 1.25 in English.

So, now that we have another play in third year (the Ramayana), I’ve resolved not to slack off in this one. If you’re reading this and you’re my classmate, wish me luck. If you’re from another section, well, good luck to you. Anyway, I think I’m doing well so far, but since the play isn’t until the end of August, only time will tell. Although I will admit that it’s hard being Vishnu, especially when you only have two arms.

P.S.: Just felt like that.

P.P.S.: Also, I has a Tumblelog. Go check it out.

    After some exhaustive research, I have reached to a conclusion that versions of Ramayana exists in many languages, including Annamese, Balinese, Bengali, Cambodian, Chinese, Gujarati, Javanese, Kannada, Kashmiri, Khotanese, Laotian, Malaysian, Marathi, Oriya, Prakrit, Sanskrit, Santhali, Sinhalese, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Tibetan, etc. In Sanskrit itself there are 25 different versions. According to A. K. Ramanujam, more than 300 tellings of Ramayana exist.

    Each has newer dimensions, more fascinating than the other.
