The Story of Ayodhya
In this riveting story, Author Yadu Vijayakrishnan brings three epochs—Ram’s tryst with Ravan, Ayodhya’s tryst with Babur and his men in the medieval period, and the Ram Janmabhoomi movement three decades ago—parallel to each other, underlining the challenges faced by us in our quest for Ram Rajya.
Ayodhya did not end with Ram returning a winner after slaying Ravan. Ayodhya did not cease to exist when the Ram Mandir was destroyed by Mir Baqi under Babur’s order. Ayodhya did not spring back to life after the Ram Janmabhoomi movement of the ’90s. Ayodhya and Ram Rajya are the essence of Sanatan, and the struggle to keep it going in the face of hostile extremism and adverse times has been eternal.
