Synopsis

The Story of Divaali by Jatinda Verma

The Story of Divaali is a beautiful rendition of The Ramayana, an age-old Hindu tale which has been passed down over centuries. The story tells of the young prince Rama who, with the love of his wife, Princess Sita, the loyalty of his younger brother Lakshmana and the bravery of the Monkey God Hanuman, overcomes the forces of darkness. Out of his triumph, Divaali, the Indian festival of lights, is born.
