Book Review: ‘Ramayana – The Game Of Life: Stolen Hope’ by Shubha Vilas

The wealth of knowledge that lies within our ancient Indian scriptures is unparalleled in the world. The Ramayana and Mahabharata are epics in their own right, and we’re sure that there are answers to any moral, social, political and even spiritual questions that you might have hidden in their pages. All of us can learn a lot to learn from these books, but lack of time and will power to flip through such huge tomes are obstacles in our way. To remedy this, we have the third volume of the ‘Ramayana – The Game Of Life’ series by Shubha Vilas for you to read and review! We’ve already given you the opportunity to review Rise of the Sun Prince and Shattered Dreams earlier, and now you can read the third part of the simplified ‘Ramayana – The Game Of Life: Stolen Hope’, which retains all the excitement and lessons of the original saga.


BlogAdda is giving out 30 author signed copies of this book to our bloggers to review and blog about the same. Are you ready to delve into the deep secrets of life?


In the evil labyrinths of Dandakaranya forest, human values are put to test. Rama’s righteousness, Lakshmana’s loyalty and Sita’s endurance reflect our own sense of values and judgment in difficult times. The story unfolds the facets of human life – the conflict and trickery, the praise, the slander and above all, the hope and the despair in the eventful forest life of exiled royals.

Stolen Hope is about extreme deception and extreme love. It is about arrogant power and deep devotion. With every twist and turn, Rama, Sita and Lakshmana find themselves robbed of whatever and whoever they valued the most.

Exploring the dynamics of human relations – between father and son, husband and wife, teacher and disciple – and the complex game of power and greed, Stolen Hope mirrors our own dilemmas in the modern world and teaches us how we must overcome them.

Seek courage when everything, including hope, is stolen.
