On 28th Nov 4.00 pm to 4.40 pm

Shubha Vilas is a prolific writer who has recently written the Ramayana. When Arun Anand asked him why he chose to write Ramayana instead of the Mahabharata. This is because Mahabharata has more action in it. To this Shubha answered that his childhood was very influenced heavily by Ramayana. He says that Ramayana is the standard which should be attained and Mahabharata is the reality of life. He took maximum inspiration from Valmiki Ramayana and at the same time, he has also taken inspiration from many paramparas which have handed down the Ramayana as it is through generations.
