The curiosity around India’s epic tomes — The Ramayana and Mahabharata — refuses to die down. Now, comic books creator Amar Chitra Katha (ACK) is taking readers back to Valmiki’s story.
“A portion is dedicated to the story of Shiva’s bow and how it came to be under Janaka’s care. It delves into the meeting between Rama and Parashurama, who was also an incarnation of Vishnu. He went around the globe 21 times on his mission to exterminate the Kshatriya race, but returned to Mount Mahendra after meeting Rama.”
