SITA and HANUMAN reach the ASOKE GROVE deep in the palace on LANKA ISLAND and the only place with an exit to the outside world.
But amongst the darkness illuminated only by the glow of fireflies lurks PRINCE INDRIJIT and his elite forces intent on preventing KING RAVANA's prize possession from leaving with the white Vanara.
Look out HANUMAN! The prince of darkness has new toys designed to catch denizens of the Kishkindha.
HALF WAY THROUGH BEAUTY PART 2.
No doubt like me you're just recovering from the first month of 2017 and the work is beginning to pile up as last year seems like a distant memory even though it only ended four weeks ago!
Inspired by my new sounds on ramyan.net I was pleased to discover this audio documentary on the BBC. Whilst you may know Sir David Attenborough from his wildlife films, he was also an avid collector of world sounds on his travels across the globe, including gamelan sounds from BALI, which I've had the pleasure of visiting a few times and witnessed performances of the RAMAYANA on this Hindu island in the Muslim majority country of INDONESIA. You can listen to the complete 45 minute documentary here.
A BIG THANK YOU to my patrons and supporters for supporting my endeavour and in bringing 26 issues of Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance which will reach its exciting conclusion in 2017.
