the ramayana

Posted on April 09 2006

I’ve been on an India jag for a while now, eating at the Indian buffet, or even occasionally visiting the Rama temple down the street. In fact, I rented Lagaan and The Mahabharata from the library.

A couple of weeks ago I was listening to the radio show Hello Beautiful, and they mentioned a musical production of the Ramayana being performed in the historic watertower in downtown Chicago. I didn’t go to see the play, but I knew a little bit of the story. While I listened to the radio, I drew a scene from the Ramayana.

And if you’d like to see another version of the Ramayana, check out Nina Paley’s Sita Sings the Blues.
