Back of the Book

Valmiki's Ramayana is believed to be the first poetic work written in Sanskrit. It is therefore referred to as the Adikavya. It is said that Brahma assured Valmiki that, "as long as the mountains stand and the rivers flow, so long shall the Ramayana be read by men."

Valmiki's monumental work caught the fancy of innumerable minds after him and influenced many other great poems, plays and novels written along the same theme, in almost all the Indian languages. Among these are the Hindi, Tamil and Bengali versions of the Ramayana written by Tulsidas in the North, Kamban in the South and Krittivasa in the East.

Our story of Kumbhakarna, the gigantic younger brother of Ravana, the King of Lanka, has been derived from Krittivasa's Ramayana, written over 500 years ago. As a poet of the people, Krittivasa's story was written in simple language replete with delightful metaphors.
