Abstract

Ramayana is not a solo entity. The number of Ramayanas and the range of their influence in South and Southeast Asia over the past twenty-five hundred years or more are astonishing.  Different versions of Rama story are available.  We can trace the story line in Burma, Thailand, Japan, Oman etc. But from 20th century, from the time modern thought of learning came into practice, Valmiki Ramayana and Ramcharitmanas started gaining unprecedented importance.
