Hindu life and belief is rooted in mythology of gods and goddesses. Their adventures in their myriad forms are the source of Hindu philosophy, religious practices and social behaviour.

Stories from the Ramayana are an integral part of the aural folklore, though time and again art tries to visually narrate them. This painting depicts an episode during the exile of Rama, Sita and Lakshmana. While they were wandering in the forest, they incurred the wrath of the demons. Surupnakha, seen here with a castrated nose, was a giantess who first tried to entice Rama, who resisted her advances, saying that he was married. She then leaned towards Lakshmana, wanting to marry him. But Lakshmana also spurned her. Surupnakha then attacked Sita but Lakshmana in turn attacked the giantess, cutting off her nose. Surupnakha sought vengeance through her elder brother Ravana and induced him to carry off Sita to Lanka.

The unique aspect of this painting is that the artist has used different body colours for different people. He has used blue for Rama's body signifying his role as an avatar of Vishnu; the fair Sita and Lakshmana belonging to the mortal world; the dark and ugly Surupnakha symbolizes the evil side of demons and giants.

The lush green and serene background stands witness to the gruesome event.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
