    1. 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 [...]


    2. 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 !
