Sundara Kãnda (the beautiful canto) of Valmiki Ramayana the adi kavya (the foremost poetical composition) is a rare work of art that is embellished with all nava rasas (nine emotional / aesthetic impressions). What is more, as the following verse illustrates, it was the forerunner of the magic realism of our times – “Gripped she then him by shadow /

Cast which Hanuman coast to coast; Recalled he in dismay then / What Sugreev said at outset / That one fiend had aptitude / To grip its prey by mere shadow”.

Magic realism and miracles apart, Sundara Kãnda tends to inculcate fortitude and generates hope in man for it is a depiction of how Hanuman goes about his errand against all odds. Besides, it portrays how Seetha, on the verge of self-immolation, overcomes despair to see life in a new light and how Hanuman's Odyssey paves the way for Rama to rescue his kidnapped wife.

Hanuman's Odyssey the transcreation of the Sanskrit epic nonpareil that is Valmiki’s Ramayana is bound to charm the readers by its rhythm and flow.
