The Ramayana is not a story. It is a way of life. It is the Game of Life.

Life is a constant reminder that nothing, however powerful in one season, remains so in the next. These endless cycles of change could really spook someone who is unprepared to face the realities. remember that situations of helplessness are always created by one’s own limited imagination.

Perception appears larger than reality. Many were afraid to battle the Lankans but grounded in reality, Rama and his army managed to free Sita.

Fear results in pain. Lying broken and braved, Sampati did not believe he could help until he did and it made all the difference.

Clarity leads to freedom.Rama never wavered in his single-minded pursuit, and eventually got exactly what he wanted.

Do you have the courage to face your fears?

Stand strong is the fourth book in Ramayana: The game of life series. A modern retelling of the Kishkindha Kanda of Valmiki’s epic, it reminds us through the tragic story of brothers Vali and Sugriva that life is like a dangerous treasure hunt. One must be resilient while running through confusing, zigzag paths to acquire essential wisdom.



We all have read Ramayana numerous times in school or have heard it from our grandmother. However, it is something that never fails to amaze no matter how many times you have read. The teachings of Ramayana are worth inculcating into your life. “Stand Strong” is the fourth book of the Ramayana series and the author has very diligently narrated the whole tale. The narration is euphoric and holds the captivating power to keep the reader engrossed until the end. Unlike Fiction, where the author does not hold the power to change the plot in any way. Therefore, what matters is the way narration is being done. The strength of Mythology lies in its narration, and the author has excelled this task. Powerful narration helps the reader engrossed. Lyrical writing style added stars to the narration. Furthermore, the teachings of Lord Rama are worth noticing.  Brilliant work was done by the author. I would love to read the rest three books too.

Negatives– I didn’t find any.!
