The victors are worshipped as gods to this day and stories of their greatness are part of everyday conversation. This is the story of the one who lost. Creators Vijayendra Mohanty and Vivek Goel explore the values inherent in the Ramayana and retell the immortal story as something more than a simple tale of good triumphing over evil.

Ravanayan is a bold new comic book series that retells Valmiki's classic epic from the point of view of its antagonist -- Ravana, king of Lanka, leader of the rakshasa nation, conqueror of worlds and vanquisher of gods. Creators Vijayendra Mohanty and Vivek Goel explore the values inherent in the Ramayana and retell the immortal story as something more than a simple tale of good triumphing over evil. This account of Ravana's life re-imagines much of what is held to be true about one of India's most loved tales and in the process, takes the reader on an enchanting quest for the very meanings of right and wrong, good and evil, dharma and adharma.

Sep 22, Priya rated it it was ok Shelves: indian-mythology. Interesting concept for sure. But wish we took our literature to some entirely new dimension which involves some part of our mythology and doesn't. For example, the way Frank Miller refurbished Batman Comics. I know thats too far a goal, but we should try. This is a very bold attempt and a very different attempt compared to many graphic novels on our mythology but there is one problem - if the author believes Ravana had his own reasons for being himself - he should go ahead with that conviction Interesting concept for sure.

This is a very bold attempt and a very different attempt compared to many graphic novels on our mythology but there is one problem - if the author believes Ravana had his own reasons for being himself - he should go ahead with that conviction full steam ahead. He should support Ravana's immature, insecure actions. But the trouble here is that most of the audience won't be ready to accept this.

The sin which our authors do, is to not believe in this opposite, and try and tip toe around Rama. Invariably they end up showing Rama in not so bad light, but in the comic, Rama is the antagonist. He has to be shown that way. Well, this maybe because of the sensitive nature of the mythology.

That is why treading on pure mythological topics, is a huge challenge. Its mixed with religion and morals and when it comes to morals, there is a good and bad and it takes something really of another dimension to reverse the good and bad. If Ravana feels bad if he killed some demon animal to save his brother Vibheeshan, then what he feels is the torment of a good conscience and that is a quality representative of Rama.

If Rama did cheat and took sugreev's side, then that part where he cheated is an aspect representative of Ravana. So both had a divided mind, but Rama's was definitely more mature.

It isn't a judgment, its just that he absolutely isn't insecure about his position, his 14 year ban - very focussed and goes about his business. So lack of insecurity too is representative of Rama. So now we see, everything which is in essence good and tending towards love is representative of Rama. To reverse this effect, rather than justifying Ravana's actions, it would be good to show the "good" part in him and vice versa.

Well, this book covered a little of that. Anyway, this is a bold attempt, and great attempt by the author to have started thinking about perspectives in mythology. View 1 comment. Oct 23, Arun Divakar rated it liked it. An interesting concept.

The whole concept of the myth of Rama as viewed through the eyes of the principal antagonist. I can only wish that there were more authors who took the plunge into the rich waters of India's mythology and come up with surprisingly fat catches!

Ravanayan Issue 1

And I could not have made a better choice for a holiday reading. Spanning over 10 issues, RAVANAYAN tells the complete story of Raavan, how a child with a mixed upbringing of human and Rakshas struggles with his internal conflict and rage, how he channels it and how he accepts the ultimate responsibility and seals his fate for the greater good, that of telling the story of hope, the story of good over evil, the story of unifying a country torn apart, the story of Ramayana. Although the story is has been bombarded on us through various references and books and stories and movies and sitcoms, the writing and the plot progression in this comic makes sure that you are glued to it. The writer has achieved this by downplaying popular shorts or incidents, like the actual kidnapping of Sita, or the insult of Shurpanakha, and focussing on the parts which actually define the King of Lanka, which is no mean feat. The character progressions are quick, but none feel rushed. The writer takes time where required, but does not waste a single moment trying to explain the context in unnecessary length.
