Title: Raavan – Enemy of Aryavarta
Author: Amish Tripathi
Publisher: Westland Books
Raavan – Enemy of Aryavarta is the third book of Ram Chandra series. Raavan is a story of a person turning into a monster because of the extremeness he was tested for. We all have known the story of Ram & Sita for our entire life but we never really know what made Raavan, Raavan and this is what makes it an interesting story.
During whammy and poverty, most people suffer but a few rebels. Some thrive to get a better life for themselves. Raavan was one among those who struggled to make a better world for himself.
Being a Naga, since childhood, Raavan had seen a lot and also, had quite understood his responsibilities for his family.
Raavan’s father was one of the famous sages of the world. Whether it was art or music, Raavan’s hands did splendid work.
Even though brutality poured from his character, there was a person to make him win over his own character. He loved a girl with all his hearts but he couldn’t ever live with her and that’s also a reason for his never backing out adharmic character.
One of Raavan’s most valuable person was his younger brother, Kumbhakaran. The story gives a broader perspective of the bond that these two shared. Born a Naga, Kumbhakaran was a genuine person who always wanted good for his brother and also wished to follow the path of dharma. His life was not of any value for him when it came to his elder brother.
This story has portrayed all the reasons for such a big God devotee to become a monster for his life.
Also through this book, the readers will be started to know how Raavan was just a pawn of a big game played by the great Guru Vishwamitra.
In this generation where nobody really wants to read Ramayana, this author is a blessing writing all these books for us.
