Ramayan on Net

Have found some interesting sites about the great Indian Epic 'Ramayan' which I am putting here.

Ramayan Story in short

Astronomical Dating of the Ramayan
(Though I have my curiosities about this)

For detailed analysis, you can refer to this page, this is really very-very elaborate.

Ramayan was also made into cartoon movie by a Japanese Director Yugo-Sako. I had seen the movie on cartoon network sometimes and was a proud owner of the video CD as well. This is an old cartoon (by some 10 years) but a brilliantly made one. I am wondering where I can buy it again.

    Hey Ritesh,

    I have seen this one too.

    It was more of a modernized version, with Raman being nothing else but an evil deamon & Ram learning use of divine weapons in a flash of a moment.

    But yes, it was enjoyable :-).

    A friend of mine has this. HE downloaded it, but he got back from the US and had to go on deputation to another site for a month. Will take a month to lay my hands on it.

  6. Thanks Shruti !! It's great to find that this cartoon is still one of the best selling items at that site. It is a great piece of work and people still appreciate it and buy it, this is simply fabulous.

    The Hindi version had Amrish Puri's voice for Raavan…

    And the song "Jai Lankeshwar Jai Raakshehpati" was great too….

    Hey praneshdra, why are you so bothered what language the Ramayana story is told in? The original was written in Sanskrit but i bet you dont have a problem with it being in Hindi right?

    The importnat thing is the story and the morals told within the story, not the language it is told in!

    17 Feb 2006, 15:33

  11. Hi Shruti ! I have the Hanuman cartoon. I got it from India. If you are on campus, I can lend it to you.

  12. Pranesh jost wrote his views about Ramayana,the movie at this entry of mine. Pranesh, nobody is trying to hurt your religious feelings. But, movie making is an art and if you are making a movie on an epic like Ramayana, it becomes a very complex process. Another thing, the movie was not made for Indian viewers. It was made by a Japanese director for Japanese children. The story was so fascinating and inspiring that he decided to make a movie for children. There were so many prominent artists from India who were involved in making of this movie. If you watch the movie carefully, you can get a feel of Anime like style of drawing. The drawing were ofcourse made by Japanese artists who specialized in making cartoon movies. The movie became so entertaining that they later decided to dub it into English and Hindi. We must accept the fact that many people in India don't understand Hindi and English is the "only language" that binds us. This was the main reason for dubbing the movie into English.

    About the movie Hanuman, I have seen the movie and I own a DVD as well. Hanuman is technically too backward a film. It doesn't have the cool animation effects that we are used to now-a-days. But somebody made a movie on Hanuman, and this is a brilliant achievement in itself. Hanuman is also the first cartoon movie entirely produced in India and it should be appreciated for that.

  24. kapil

    Hi Friends

    This is Kapil from Pune – India.

    Did anybody watched the climax of Ramayana ? The story says that Ram killed Ravana with his Bow & Arrow and the film shoots it with a Chakra ?

    I hope there will be someone to help out this Money Making Machine Producers stop mis-presenting our religious stories.

    Worst of that , did anybody saw Mahabharata Animated Film ? Its horrrible, the ancient characters wore T-Shirts !!!!

    May God Bless these animators to stop this like non-sense.

    Hanuman was supposed to be a good film but i personally felt that first half is done by professionals and later one by juniors. It was very painful to watch it after interval.

    Anyways, did anybody heard of new Indian animated movie “Krishna” ? based on stories of Lord Krishna. The promos are on television and we are expecting the release in next month.

    Thanx for your time to review my comment ! Thankx to ritesh for his blog !!

    Hi there!
    I’m teaching World History to Spanish speaking students. Right now, we’re going to begin reading about Hinduism. We read about the Vedas, and Ramayana and Mahabharata of course.
    I would very much like to get some videos, cartoons, CVDs, whatever that could enlighten my students.
    If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate it very much.
    Thanks,
    Marilupe

  26. Hello Marilupe ,

    I will be glad to be of help. At present, I have a DVD of ‘Hanuman’. If you are on campus, I can give it to you.

    - Ritesh.

    Hi,

    The animated Ramayana was originally released in India in both Hindi and English, and dubbed into other languages soon after. The international release was marketed under the name “Warrior Prince”, and finally the US release was totally re-dubbed with US voice actors and a Disney-style musical soundtrack done by veteran Hollywood sound producer Alan Howarth. I’ll say that the US-released version is even better than the Indian-released version, and it’s worth getting.

    I just want to thank you for this blog. I never knew there was a cartoon made on Ramayana. I am a cartoon fanatic. Just wanted to write a few sentences on Kapil’s narrow minded comment on a cartoon made by a Japanese director. We Indians were incapable of making any good cartoons for kids until now (Hanuman). We were always obsessed in making useless movies which were always catered to the perverse adult lot. Someone makes a very good attempt on telling the story of Ramayana to kids worldwide, we tend to throw our criticism on it by saying that the story is inaccurate or some other idiotic comment like, “it is a religious story”. Why do you bring religion into something that is to be appreciated in terms of creativity? If you really want to comment on something, we must produce a good cartoon by our own accord.. which apparently we are incapable of doing, coz no one pays money to produce the cartoons. We pay money only for the useless Bollywood movies.
