About the Book
Goswami Tulsidas, who wrote Shri Rama Charit Manas, was the greatest poet of his era. The Hindu society at the time of Tulsidas was experiencing the most deep-rooted evil, the Varna or Caste systems. The People of Shudra Varna were deprived of social, religious, and educational rights. In such an environment, Tulsidas tried to remove all social in equalities through his creation, Shri Rama Charit Manas, dedicated to the devotion of Lord Rama, and built a platform for everyone, where all discrimination is erased.
He was aware of their conditions and reflected this perspective in the epic. He showed the right way through, Lord Rama, who treated them at par and befriended and embraced them.
The author, R.K Chopra, comes from a religious family of Varanasi, which Published Shri Rama Charit Manas in 1930s. In this book, he has tried to present a literary interpretation of supposedly controversial verses in the epic and illustrated the Poet’s support for Social Equality.
