Description
Preface

Being encouraged by the favourable manner in which my first book 'The Mahabharata-a Criticism' was received by the public, I am now tempted to place before the reader, as stated in the preface to that book, the second instalment of my ideas, viz. my views on the Ramayana considered from the poetical and historical stand-points. The Ramayana, by which I mean the Ramayana of Valmiki, when considered poetically and historically presents so many aspects and incidents which appear almost inexplicable and therefore imaginary that I have ventured to name this book "The Riddle of the Ramayana." The solution of these apparently inexplicable aspects and incidents which I have given in the following pages will, I trust, be found at least interesting if not convincing in every case.

I have in this book adopted the Devanagari character for printing the Sanskrit Slokas and sentences quoted. Words, however, like Brahmin, which are of usual occurrence are given in English and in their ordinarily accepted spellings. In other respects this book resembles its predecessor almost wholly.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
