Book Review: Ramayana - The Game of Life : Shattered Dreams

I am honoured to be called upon by BlogAdda to review a book "Ramayana - The Game of Life : The Shattered Dreams" by Shubha Vilas.

Here before presenting my review of the book, I apologise blogadda for the delay of the review. As i was suffering from fever for the past 10 days so I couldn’t able to write the review, as my eyes were burning with irritation caused by fever.

Coming to the review Ramayana -The Game of Life by Shubha Vilas. Shattered Dreams is the sequel of the book, Rise of the Sun Prince,in the new spiritual and motivational series Ramayana - The Game Of Life.Twelve joyful years have passed in Ayodhya since the wedding of Rama and Sita at the end of the first Book.

In Shattered Dreams,Shubha Vilas narrates the riveting drama of Rama's exile.Through tales of Rama's unwavering and enigmatic person.the book teaches us how to handle reversals positively;through Bharata's actions,

it teaches us to handle temptation and through Sita's courage,to explore beyond our comfort zone.This complicated family drama provides deep insights on how human relationships work and how they fail.


Shubha Vilas narrated in a very interesting style which makes it easy to understand.  This book enlightens us to walk on the right path,to choose truth over any other thing. we can learn many lessons from this book which helps to make our life better.

It gives a clear explanation of importance of relationships of every aspect of life in every page. Every page is a new lesson for the reader.

As we say, “Truth itself becomes a shield that protects one from all calamities and not exiled”.

This book tells us to show Kindness, accomodation, appreciation, integrity of substance which adds to internal rituals  while Money,fame,glorification,grandeur add to external rituals of show. it also explains about our environment which raises our hopes or dashes them at times.

It also speaks about the importance of scriptures,which was cleverly molded by kaikeyi, the  meaning of ideal marriage, the importance of peaceful mind rather than Luxuries and also clarifies the importance of loyalty. Remembrance of one's humble beginnings even after achieving great heights is the pill that prevents the acidity of arrogance.

It throws light on how one can maintain good relationships in life. Relationships thrive when genuine service is acknowledged by active gratitude. The decisions have to be made in moments of strength not in moment of weakness for a healthy relationship.

Communication is must for a good relationship wherein Rama and Sita speak so little but understood eachother so much.

Good relationship grow when both the happy and sad phases of life are shared and complaints are kept at bay.

Convenience is about changing the law to suit your life but maturity is about changing your life to salute the law.

 I would only recommend this for people who are interested in looking at Ramayana.
