books by Rohini Chowdhury

Classics may be defined as those great works of literature, ancient, medieval and modern, that stand out from similar works in terms of their excellence. Classics may belong to any genre - fiction, drama, autobiography, biography, poetry, letters, history.

The Ramayana, the great Sanskrit epic composed by the sage Valmiki more than 3,000 years ago, is one such classic work of literature.

Read one of the stories from Valmiki's Ramayana:

Lav and Kush, the Royal Twins

The works of William Shakespeare also fall into this category. As you see, we have taken a picture of Shakespeare as the icon for our 'Classics Retold' section on this website. This is because, in our opinion, his writings stand far above anything else that has been written in the English language.

Read the story of one of Shakespeare's most popular plays:

A Midsummer Night's Dream
