Shreyas and Ayur Pulle’s honest re-telling of the Ramayana ancient Indian epic poem is an accessible and engaging listen, bringing to life the struggles of the divine prince Rama to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana. In its original form, the Ramayana is one of the largest ancient epics in world literature consisting of nearly 24,000 verses. However, the Pulle brothers ensure that the listener can easily follow the plot of this undeniably complex story with its many characters, kingdoms and divine beings. The use of music to create atmosphere and aid the listener’s transportation into the world of the story worked well but could have been developed further as a tool to engage the listener and allow the plot some space to breathe. Overall, an interesting and informative listen for anyone interested in the origins of Diwali.
