Book review : Ramayana – The Game of Life: Shattered Dreams

 Ramayana - The Game of Life : Shattered Dreams 
                                                            -     Shubha Vilas


Shattered Dreams is the sequel to the national bestseller, Rise of the Sun Prince, in the new spiritual and motivational series Ramayana – The Game of Life.
The first book had end with twelve joyful years have passed in Ayodhya since the wedding of Rama and Sita. Now, in Shattered Dreams, the author Shubha Vilas narrates the enthralling drama of Rama’s exile.



To be frank I have not read the part I of the book, still I did not get lost with the topics and was able to understand how the author is comparing each event with modern life. And each chapters are intriguing with new leanings.

We can connect our life with the book and also can get solutions to different challenges that we face in Life. Indeed great work by the author.

Secondly the comparison of a person about his nature with real life non living objects was draft very beautifully. For eg : The Human Nature Anger was compared with a Flower Vase, with Angry person personifies like a flower vase that falls on someone’s foot; obviously it shall hurt the foot but a same time vase also breaks. It explains very nicely how can ones anger ruin his own life as well.

We can have a good learning's from such examples and implement in our day to day life

After reading the complete book the most important thing I noticed was that the title shattered dreams, it is intertwined of many reasons and many minds.

It is basically shattered dreams of Dasartha due to various lives in his life: The greed of power of his wife Keikeyi, The love for Rama of Sita, The faith and trust of Laxman on Rama and most importantly the humble and pure nature of Rama.

The relation of Rama and Sita, especially during the negative emotions is written so well that this can be as a benchmark for today’s couples where how a disagreements and different mindset can bring into one direction.

The book is not just general story of our great epic Ramayana, it is rather a guidebook which shall always give spark to all our Life’s question.



Final Say: A must Read book J
