As a student, we are so much occupied with our text-books that at this period of our life, our general reading is necessarily limited. My reading, too, has so far been confined to a few books. During my childhood, I had read ‘Alice in Wonderland. It was really one of the most interesting books for me at that time. When I grew up, I found a collection of Prem Chand’s stories, on excellent material for reading.
2 . My favourite book–
The serial of Ramayan’ on T.V. every Sunday fascinated me so much that I was drawn towards reading the ‘Ram Charit Manas’ written by Tulsidas. I have found it the most interesting book that I have read. It has rightly been called the Bible of mankind.
3- Secret of the Ram Charit Manas–
What is the secret of the Ram Charit Manas? First of all, there is the spontaneous ease and simplicity of the style. Tulsidas was a saint and his poetry has anectared accent. The melody of the Ram Charit Manas takes ear and heart captive. The poem is life-like.
What is more, it is also life giving. We feel, while reading the poem, that our life is being enriched.
4 . Charm of human relationships–
Tulsidas has great powers as a narrative poet. The story of the Ram Charit Manas is a fascinating one. Then, there is the charm of human relationships like the love of father, mother, son and brother, husband and wife appealingly described. There are animal characters, who are also human like Hanuman, Jamwant, Jatayu and Angada. Tulsidas is unrivalled in making the characters alive and real.
The demons or the Rakshas have also been vividly presented. Tulsidas succeeds remarkably well in creating the right atmosphere of the scenes presented by him in this great poem.
5 . Its noble effect–
The thoughts, the emotions and the inner character of men and women and of the poem are made real and convincing by the magic pen of Tulsidas. We not only read the poem, but also love the poem. So effective is the style. The poem is full of nobility of feeling and thought. It uplifts us. It humanises us and it has a touch of divinity. It has joy, moral power, pathos and the play of other human feelings and emotions. It is among the few greatest books of the world.
