Swami Chinmayananda describes Ramayana as a picture gallery where each picture is a perfect one - and yet the entire gallery is confusing with its variegated colours. Just like the picture of the world around us. That is why it attracts the young and the old alike. This book especially written for children, awakens in one a sense of beauty and wonder. The language is lyrical - the sentences are short and crisp and the style is racy. The story of Sri Rama is not just narrated as an ancient tale full of sound and fury signifying nothing. The narration is interspersed with descriptions of the sights and sounds of Nature.
