Ram On The Spot

“Ramayana remains a metaphorical study in the way Ram’s glory is chanted as ‘Maryada Purush’. His adventures are no doubt fascinating but he can and should be questioned on being termed the perfect husband. It pretty sums up the agni pariksha modern women in our society are going through and how they are labeled as sluts. It whittles down to our understanding of the Ramayana in a patriarchal society”. Excerpt from the Review by Vishal Bheeroo of Hinduism Beyond Rituals, Customs and Traditions.
