Prince Rama Son of the Solar Dynasty

by Vrinda Sheth

Prince in Exile is the first in a three volume translation of India’s literary masterpiece – Ramayana. There are many versions of this classic written for adults, but very few exist that have so carefully retold the spellbinding epic of Lord Rama along with its universal moral and spiritual lessons in such an attractive manner for children.

This set, Prince Rama, Son of the Solar Dynasty, is not only a feast for the eyes, but also for the ears and heart. An exceptionally talented mother and daughter team have created one of the most beautiful children’s Ramayana ever published. Children of all ages will be fascinated by Annapurna’s delightful illustrations and Vrinda’s mesmerizing narration.

The Ramayana has been one of the most widely spread and popular works of literature in the world. Its translation into numerous languages both within and beyond India and its adaptation to different cultures has endeared it to countless people, young and old. Prince Rama, Son of the Solar Dynasty, as a modern adaptation for young people, is lovingly written by Vrinda Sheth and illustrated by her mother, Anna, in a way that invites all to enter deeply into the spirit of the drama that propels the story forward and makes it part of our collective memory.
Even those familiar with the Ramayana will experience it in a new light, as Vrinda offers plausible details to enhance the ancient narrative and Anna’s illustrations bring to new life the characters of  Rama and his associates. While reading it, I wished that such a book had been available to me when growing up, and now that Prince Rama is available, I can enthusiastically recommend it to all Ramayana enthusiasts, either existing or in the making (this book will certainly make one a Ramayana enthusiast if not so already).
