"In 2008, a quasi political organisation asked for the removal of an academic paper from the syllabus of Delhi University. They eventually succeeded in 2011. But what was in that paper that had 'hurt' sentiments? This week, in the second episode of India's linguistic heritage, and on the occasion of Diwali, we dive into a simple question: How many Ramayans? Three hundred or Three thousand? Which is the original Ramayan? Tune in, and discover the mind boggling universe of Ramayans, spread across languages and geographies, and what they tell us about 'culture'.

Special thanks goes out to Swastica K, who graciously sang the Sanskrit Shloka you will hear in this episode. Do check out her podcast, Samskrita Kendram"
