a little question?
could you ask for postcard version of all the crew???
for collect them
This works well as a pin.
The colors are amazing.
I don’t know what a “cloisonne” is. But I’d happily wear one on my cloisonne. Or even two! One on each cloisonne.
My wife says she’d wear that on a t-shirt (though I suspect she might wear a pin as well).
It’s very nice, but I can’t think of any cloisonne pin I’d wear.
*so* pretty. I’d like a whole set of character pins.
I’d wear it! Other characters would be great too.
I love this!
Yes, I’d buy one of these. And I’d buy it as a shirt on black too.
hmmm. if it was the right size, it’d work as a bolo . . .
It would be the coolest phonograph pin ever.. especially for those singing the blooes – cos it would remind them that they aren’t totally alone.. hmmm.. but that makes me wonder :).. will there be a peahen version of it too.. ?
I have some friends I’d like to give this to.
I’d love to buy one for my wife – she’d love it and wear it when she teaches. My mom would like one, too.
This is a masterpiece! It’s beautiful! I love the music. I love the shadow puppets. I love everything about it.
When I were a child my nani used to have me read out Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas to her. To this day Tulsidas remains the greatest poet I have had the pleasure to enjoy. I still read him every now and then. Sadly I think he is quite untranslatable, as perhaps most all poetry is.
In recent days I have had the pleasure of reading Ramesh Menon’s fine book “The Ramayana,” his very engaging interpretation, in English, of Valimiki’s adikavya. I have also lately enjoyed Paula Richman’s “Many Ramayanas: The Diversity of a Narrative Tradition in South Asia.”
The Ramayana has molded the Indian psyche for two millennia. A large majority of Indians, and some communities elsewhere in South Asia, have grown up with stories from the Ramayana. While it is a rip-roaring story, while it is a defining text of Hinduism, it is also the story of a great betrayal: that of Sita by Rama. I like how Nina has woven the story of her own betrayal into Sita’s story.
This is a highly original contribution to the corpus of Ramayana stories; one for which the world will forever be grateful to Nina Paley.
